White House adviser: "confident" on healthcare bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House senior adviser David Axelrod on Thursday said he was “confident” that the necessary 60 votes will be marshalled in the Senate to bring healthcare legislation to a vote.

“I’m confident that we’re going to get this done in a way that will hold the coalition together,” Axelrod said in an interview on “PBS Newshour.”

He also said that he expects a vote before the holiday and emphasized “we are going to get this done.”
