Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said Democrats will finish their health reform efforts within the next two months, The Hill reports.

Reid also confirmed that Democrats "would likely opt for a procedural tactic in the Senate allowing the upper chamber to make final changes to its healthcare bill with only a simple majority of senators, instead of the 60 it takes to normally end a filibuster."

Said Reid: "I've had many conversations this week with the president, his chief of staff, and Speaker Pelosi. And we're really trying to move forward on this."
