House still needing more health care votes

An Associated Press report says the Democrat's chief vote counter in the House says that right now there aren't enough votes to pass President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

Democrat congressman James Clyburn (pictured) of South Carolina said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that "a comfort level" has been reached among the House, Senate and White House on details about the sweeping legislation.

He concedes, however, that House supporters don't have the necessary votes right now.

Sounds like Pelosi needs to cajole, threaten or bribe House members for a few more votes.
