WASHINGTON, DC- Dec. 22: Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., talks to reporters before a Senate Republican luncheon. A possible bipartisan deal to move a much smaller bill to provide health care and compensation to people exposed to toxic material at Ground Zero after Sept. 11 was in the works Wednesday morning as the final hours of the 111th Congress ticked down. A Senate GOP aide said that Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was willing to support an agreement negotiated with Sen. Michael B. Enzi, R-Wyo., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., that would significantly reduce the cost of the $6.2 billion measure. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
