Senate votes down bid for health care repeal; Rubio and Nelson diverge

The Senate just rejected Republican efforts to repeal last year's health care law -- with a 47 to 51 vote.

Florida Sen. Bill Nelson voted against the repeal; Marco Rubio -- who campaigned against it -- voted for it.

Nelson earlier today called for the Senate to send the law to the US Supreme Court for a quick review -- saying it's likely going to end up there anyhow.
