Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill
WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic leaders secure the support of Sen. Ben Nelson to provide the 60th and deciding vote for sweeping health care legislation in the Senate, capping a year of struggle and a final burst of deadline bargaining on President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

Nelson, D-Neb., said he made his decision after winning fresh concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges, as well as tens of million in federal Medicaid funds for his home state.

“I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept and I appreciate their right to disagree,” he said at a news conference in the Capitol, referring to the abortion issue. “But I would not have voted for this bill without these provisions.”

He also noted he had successfully fended off attempts to provide for a government-run insurance option to compete with private insurers.

Prostitution – noun

3. The act or an instance of offering or devoting one’s talent to an unworthy use or cause.
