Vitter: Reid Has 60 For The MTP

From The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will get exactly the 60 votes he needs to pass healthcare reform legislation through its first test tomorrow, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) said Friday.

Reid on Thursday scheduled a cloture vote on a motion to proceed yesterday. The vote is the first crucial test the healthcare bill will face in the Senate.

“My guess, that’s all it is, is that it would be exactly 60 to exactly 40 but we’ll see,” Vitter said on MSNBC this morning. “I think he probably does [have enough votes] for this first pivotal vote.”
