WASHINGTON - With the health care bill going to a final vote tomorrow Democrats are fighting back against Republican criticisms about the bill.

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill responded to opposition of the health care reform bill stating the bill's strengths outweigh its flaws.

McCaskill says it is unfair for Republicans to criticize deals inside the bill negotiated by Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson and other Democrats.

The Senator went on to say Democrats also changed the bill in response to some of the criticisms.
