BREAKING: GOP Health Care Filibuster Defeated

The Senate just voted 60-39 to invoke cloture and end debate on the health care reform bill, thus breaking the GOP’s filibuster.

The vote was entirely along party lines–Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe was the absent Republican.

The final vote on health care reform–where only 51 votes will be required–is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM; it will be the first time Congress has cast a vote on Christmas Eve since 1895.
