House health bill passes on narrow vote

SHARE House health bill passes on narrow vote

Late Saturday, after a rare weekend session–which included a trip by President Obama to the Capitol–the House narrowly approved a sweeping, historic health care measure. Next steps: the Senate votes on that chambers version of the legislation and then back to the members for a final vote on a melded bill. So a lot can still change. The bill, passed on a 220 to 215 roll call, had only one Republican vote. How narrow was the win? Two votes to spare; 218 votes were needed to pass.
