WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has passed its version of a health care overhaul, but analysts aren't expecting the Senate to follow suit any time soon.
Majority Leader Harry Reid is already hinting that senators may not be able to finish a health care measure this year.
For now, he's trying to find the votes for a government plan that states could opt out of.
Saturday's close House vote passed a measure that includes a government health insurance plan. That provision is unacceptable to some Democratic moderates who hold the balance of power in the Senate.
The goal is to work out a political formula that will give Reid not only the 60 votes needed to begin debate, but the 60 needed to shut off discussion and bring the bill to a final vote.
