San Francisco Chronicle - The Associated Press

Majority Leader Harry Reid says Senate Democrats will press ahead with President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul despite the loss of a Massachusetts Senate seat to a Republican. Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, Reid offered a list of Senate accomplishments last year, from the Cash for Clunkers program to expanding national service programs. He said in the coming year, the Senate would ensure all Americans affordable health care.
