As of now, the future of both health care bills remains uncertain. When Republican Scott Brown was elected to the open Massachusetts seat in the Senate on Jan. 19, the Democrats lost the 60-vote supermajority in the Senate. Republicans now have enough votes to block legislation in the chamber.
Currently, Democratic leaders are working to combine the Senate and House bills into one piece of legislation. Once together, the new bill would once again have to pass through the House and the Senate and then to the desk of President Barack Obama.
