Senate near bipartisan consensus on health reform: Baucus
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate is near agreement on a broad bipartisan plan to revamp the costly healthcare system, and legislation is very likely to pass, a leading senator said on Monday.
Democratic Senator Max Baucus told Reuters in an interview the powerful Senate Finance Committee he chairs would propose draft legislation this week, estimating there was an "85 to 90 percent" chance meaningful healthcare reform would be passed in the Senate with bipartisan support.
