Senate passes final health care bill: Nelson votes yes, LeMieux no



The U.S. Senate just approved the final health care bill, a package of fixes. It was approved 56-43 and now goes to the House for final passage. A vote should happen this evening.

Florida's Senators reflected the partisan divide. Republican George LeMieux was against it; Democrat Bill Nelson was in favor.
