After two hours of often acrimonious debate, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed Obama’s health care “reform” bill. The final vote was 219 to 212.

The House vote supersedes its November action, when mostly Democrats and one Republican passed the original House health care bill on a 220-215 vote.

Immediately prior to the vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Obamacare is in the tradition of the Declaration of Independence and the Founding Fathers. Democrats gave Pelosi a standing ovation.

“Yes we can!” Democrats chanted as the final votes were counted.

Congressional officials said they expected Obama to sign the bill as early as Tuesday.
