Dems Hope to Revive Healthcare Bill

Ad Feedback

Congressional Democratic leaders say they are trying to find a way to revive the health care reform bill.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he expects it to be done as soon as possible. And Senate Democrats may still try to use a maneuver to pass a bill without getting 60 votes.

"We will not be deterred from this course of getting something done one way or another, and I'm hoping it will ... be mainly by passing the comprehensive bill. That's our plan," House Speaker Leader Nancy Pelosi said.

Meanwhile, the Newfoundland Premier and Labrador Premier Danny Williams needs heart surgery -- and he is coming to the U.S. to get it.

Canada's National Post reports that Williams' decision raised eyebrows over his apparent shunning of the Canadian healthcare system.

"Virtually all forms of cardiac surgery are looked after in Canada, and I would say extremely well," said Dr. Chris Feindel, a cardiac surgeon at Toronto's University Health Network. "Personally ... I would have my cardiac surgery done in Canada, no matter what resources I had at my disposal."
