Ted Kennedy is undergoing a new round of chemotherapy and is expected to miss this month's debate on the health care overhaul he crafted, the Hill reports. The senator has been weakened by his brain cancer treatment, but he has insisted the process move forward during his absence from Capitol Hill. He plans to continue playing a leading role from his Massachusetts home.
"As Sen. Kennedy has said many times, guaranteeing that all Americans have access to affordable and quality healthcare is the cause of his life,” said a spokesman. “He’s been a leader on this issue for 40 years, and he continues to lead. That doesn’t depend on location.”
