Saturday Night's vote pushing the Health Reform Bill toward approval resulted in a majority vote from Democrats 60-39 in the Senate.

A week after the earthquake in Haiti, relief organizations world-wide have provided aid to support the devastated country. According to the United Nations, 609,000 Haitians are living on the streets because of severe damage to their homes. The American Red Cross is infiltrated in the affected areas surrounding Port AU Prince, Haiti.
