    President Obama rejected a call by the former Democratic Party chairman to kill the current Senate health care bill, a White House spokesman said.


    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, a physician who also was Vermont governor and a former presidential candidate, said on national television Wednesday he believed legislation in the Senate would now benefit the insurance industry more than it helps Americans struggling to gain health coverage or pay for it.


    Dean said the bill was an "insurance company's dream."

    Senate to Work Holiday Week on Health Care



    The Senate is on course for a final vote on health care reform legislation Christmas day -- either gift-wrapping passage of President Obama's top domestic agenda item or sending him the legislative equivalent of a lump of coal.

    Getting to that point, however, will be no holiday.

    Numerous Senate aides tell Fox News that the expected schedule through next week includes votes on a defense spending bill and an increase in the federal debt limit, some late-night sessions, the introduction of amendments that could take hours to be read aloud and three potentially decisive procedural votes requiring large majorities.

    If the Democratic caucus can remain unified that long, it could set up a final vote next Friday on legislation intended to overhaul the health care system, check rising costs, and provided coverage to millions of uninsured Americans.

    The year-end wrangling even has staff members and some lawmakers muttering "Harry Christmas," the Associated Press reported.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has struggled to herd and to hold the 60 votes required to advance the health care overhaul that could affect every single American -- not to mention the 2010 midterm elections.
