Rep. Anthony Weiner told MSNBC's Willie Geist that attempts to pass a health care reform law would fail if Scott Brown was elected as the next senator from Massachusetts.

"We've become so inert to the idea of 60 votes that any one senator can now stop this. So what have we done the last several months? We're held hostage by Olympia Snowe, by Joe Lieberman, by Senator Nelson and now by this guy Brown. If this guy Brown -- he essentially -- now we're voting on whether or not health care will move forward," said Weiner.
