Scheduling the Senate Vote on Health Care

Filed under: General — DRJ @ 3:45 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

The Senate vote on ObamaCare may come on Christmas Eve:

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s plan to pass the Senate health care reform bill by Christmas looked increasingly in doubt Wednesday, as Republicans launched an offensive to stall the legislation and Democrats had yet to strike a 60-vote compromise.

Senators privately considered one scenario Wednesday that would have them casting a final vote at 7 p.m. Christmas Eve…”

I hope Senators Lieberman and Franken aren’t each other’s Secret Santa.

  5. it may indeed be a lonely time in the senate for al franken by the time he’s up for re-election: by 2014, the only democrats left in the senate may just be the ones who won election or re-election in 2008.
