As the United States House of Representatives prepares to use a rare Sunday session to vote on President Barack Obama’s health care reform bill, the chairman of the Democratic caucus says his party is poised to win the historic vote.

Appearing on ABC television’s “This Week,” Connecticut Rep. John Larson said Sunday the Democrats had the 216 votes needed to pass the bill.

“We have the votes now — as we speak,” he said.

Republicans are vehemently opposed to the bill and have maintained that they will vote against it.

In their efforts to get the bill passed, Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have focused on undecided Democrats.

Sunday afternoon’s session includes two votes. First, Congress will vote on the Senate-passed health care reform bill. If passed, the bill will then head to the president to be signed into law.

If the bill passes, Congress will then vote on a package of changes that, if passed, will go back to the Senate.
