For a bill to become law it must be passed by both houses of Congress, so when the Senate passes a bill, the same bill must also go to the House of Representatives, or if the House has passed a similar bill, the two bills must be reconciled by a joint committee to produce a single bill that both houses can pass. Then when both houses have passed the same bill, the bill goes to the President for his signature. The President may or may not sign the bill, and if he doesn't, Congress can over-ride the veto if they have enough votes. Otherwise the bill dies.

A Bill can not pass in the Senate before it has been passed by the House of Representatives. A Bill can be passed by the House but not the Senate but the Senate can not pass a Bill that was not first passed by the House. Therefore, it either gets rejected if not passed in either houses of Congress or gets sent to the President to Sign or Veto it.

Nothing. Bills which fail simply stop.

The content of a failed bill may be re-introduced at a later date in a different bill, but once a specific bill has been voted down, it cannot then be re-introduced later.

Who voted for health care bill?

The health care bill was voted down pretty much party lines. ONLY Democratic Senators and the one independent (and Lieberman (the Independent Democratic) voted for the bill and even some of them realized how bad this was for America and voted against the plan. Included in this plan are give aways that include $7 billion for gym sets, giveaways to students and $400 billion in cuts to the current public option that over 40% are currently on. It also keeps these same Congresspeople from having to have the same health care we will be forced to endure.

How might only one senator slow down or stop consideration of a bill?

A senator can slow down or stop consideration of a bill by speaking for an extended period of time, a procedure known as a filibuster. This can delay the bill's progress or prevent it from being voted on altogether. Additionally, the senator can prevent the bill from moving forward by placing a hold on it, which requires the agreement of a supermajority to overcome.
