Do the Democrats Have a Plan B for Passing Health Care Reform?

Ever since the special election in Massachusetts two weeks ago, which deprived them of their filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, congressional Democrats have been exploring whether some way still exists to pass the health care reform bill. A report today says that House and Senate leaders have agreed to use the process known as reconciliation for this purpose. But the path is strewn with procedural pitfalls.

Update: The Plum Line reports that the White House is also privately expressing support for the reconciliation approach.
