Health care reform bill passes

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic-controlled Congress has
approved historic legislation extending health care to tens of
millions of Americans who lack it and cracking down on insurance
company abuses.

The vote in the House was 219-212. Republicans were unanimously
opposed. The bill now goes to President Barack Obama for his
signature.

The action late Sunday capped a yearlong quest by Obama and
Democrats to overhaul the system and reshape a sixth of the
economy.
