From CNN: Senate Health Care Bill Clears Key Hurdle

Washington (CNN) -- Democrats won a major victory in their push for health care reform early Monday morning as the Senate voted to end debate on a package of controversial revisions to a sweeping $871 billion bill.

The 60-40 party-line vote, cast shortly after 1 a.m., kept Senate Democrats on track to pass the bill on Christmas Eve. If it passes, the measure will then have to be merged with a roughly $1 trillion plan passed by the House of Representatives in November. Shortly after the vote, the Senate went into recess until noon Monday.

"The die is cast. It's done," New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer proclaimed after the vote."

"Die" is an awfully appropriate word, Chuck. This bill passes, and it will be the death of America.

"Who watches the Watchmen?"
