Late Tuesday afternoon (ET), I listened to an interview from DC. The woman speaking said she had sat through a number of meetings during the day and -- in her opinion -- the new National Health Car Bill might be Dead On Arrival in the Senate.

Her reasoning was that there was so much that needed to be compromised and changed in the previously voted on legislation, Senators will actually be voting on nearly an entirely new Bill. As a technicality, this means the Democrats will be back to needing 60 votes to get it through. Last week the general consensus was that they would only need 51 for a "slightly modified" Bill but that's changed.

Listen for news reports and information leaks as Nancy and Harry and the gang go back behind closed doors.
