(NBC) - The health care reform bill arrived at the White House with little fanfare, but it won't leave that way.
In a few hours, the President and his party will celebrate an extraordinary political achievement, and try again to sell it to a skeptical public.
While a group of medical professionals cheered the bill's passage, several state attorneys general are ready to fight it on constitutional grounds, "it goes far beyond an unfunded mandate and would literally cost the state of Florida alone billions of dollars," says Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum
A house divided passed the bill late Sunday with only three votes to spare. This week, senate democrats will get to work on a package of fixes to the bill they just passed.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid promises he has the fifty-one votes needed to get it passed, "what this budget fix is all about is simply making good law we passed on Christmas Eve even better," says Senator Reid.
Republicans in the Senate have a different take on the package, "now they want to make this bill even worse. They want to make add more deals on top of the other ones," says Senate Minority Leader, Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
The health care bill about to become law, but the fight continues.
