WASHINGTON - The House of Representatives passed a sweeping health care reform bill late Sunday night, and it could be signed into law as soon as Tuesday.
The House passed the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" by a vote of 219 to 212. That's the senate's version of health care reform.
Republicans unanimously voted against it.
In order to get enough Democrats on board, the House also passed a second bill, changing some of the Senate's provisions that they didn't like. The Senate is supposed to discuss this so-called "Fix-It" bill on Tuesday.
Senate Democrats said they wanted to get this second bill to the President's desk on Tuesday, but some of the GOP opposition said that they will do everything they can to slow down the process and try to force the legislation back to the house for another vote.
President Obama is continuing his campaign to the public. He's insisting that this bill will change the country's needs.
