all eyes on massachusetts

The future of the health care bill may hang on today’s special election in Massachusetts, to fill the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat. Should Republican Scott Brown defeat Democrat Martha Coakley, Democrats would lose their filibuster-proof 60 votes in the U.S. Senate. A Republican win may discourage other Democrats in tight re-election races from voting for health care reform. Eyes are peeled.
