BOSTON (AP) - A panicky White House and Democrats are scrambling
to salvage their health care bill if a Republican wins Tuesday's Senate race in Massachusetts.

A victory by Scott Brown over Democrat Martha Coakley would give Senate Republicans enough to block the bill with a filibuster.

A newly discussed fallback would require House Democrats to approve the Senate-passed bill without changes. President Barack Obama could sign it into law without another Senate vote. House leaders would urge the Senate to make changes later under a complex
plan the would require only a simple majority.
