Congressional Democrats are “very close” to reaching final agreement on healthcare reform legislation and could have a deal in days, House of Representatives Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer said on Friday.

“I would certainly hope that within the next 24, 48, 72 hours, that we have a general agreement between the Senate and the House,” Hoyer said in an interview with U.S. cable network CNBC…

“My expectation is that we will be getting very close today. Now, whether it’s at noon time or later, I don’t want to speculate,” he said.
