S.D. senators still in opposite corners of health-care debate

South Dakota’s U.S. senators remain entrenched in opposite corners of the health-care reform fight.
Each conducted his own conference call Wednesday with reporters. Tim Johnson, a Democrat, said he supports the pending legislation and considers this to be one of the most important moments in his two-plus decades of congressional service. Defeat of the health-care bill, he said, would be tantamount to a defeat of Social Security in the 1930s or Medicare in the 1960s.
