Any health-care legislation that reaches President Barack Obama’s desk will be close to the version the Senate passed last week, top Democrats said yesterday.
The Senate garnered the minimum 60 votes needed to overcome Republican objections and pass its measure overhauling health care, and any major changes would jeopardize final approval, said Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey, chairman of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee.
“If we are going to have a final law, it will look a lot more like the Senate version than the House version,” Menendez said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’m sure there’ll be some compromises, but at the end of the day, I would expect that it will look very much like the Senate version.”
Menendez’s counterpart in the House, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, said it is important to hold on to the 60 votes in the Senate.
