Steny Hoyer: 'The Senate bill clearly is better than nothing'
Over the weekend, Nancy Pelosi said, "Let's remove all doubt, we will have health care -- one way or another." Now her number two in the House, Steny Hoyer, is saying that "the Senate bill clearly is better than nothing." There's been an understandable reticence to consider the possibility that the Senate Democrats lose their 60th vote, but if that happens, my sense is that House Democrats will adjust and recognize that they -- and the country -- are better off passing the health-care reform bill that they've already voted for than letting it die.
