Senate OK's Health Care Measure

The Senate has passed President Barack Obama's landmark health care overhaul extending medical insurance to 30 million Americans.

The bill requires nearly all Americans to buy insurance and forbids insurance companies from denying coverage based on patients' pre-existing conditions.

The Senate's bill must still be merged with legislation passed by the House before Obama could sign a final bill in the new year.
