Senate Dems Demand Health Care Bill Before a Vote
by

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid faces another potential obstacle before he can wreck America health care:  eight Democratic moderates have requested that any bill be available for 72 hours before a vote.  Reports National Journal:

Eight moderate Democrats further complicated the floor effort Tuesday by asking Reid to post on the Internet for 72 hours the full legislative text of a final bill and complete CBO scores “prior to the first vote to proceed on health reform legislation.”

The moderates want the text as amended and modified CBO scores available electronically 72 hours before a final vote on the measure. If Reid determines he must acquiesce to the moderates to get the bill passed, such efforts could delay a final vote further by a few weeks at least.

“Whether or not our constituents agree with the direction of the debate, many are frustrated and lacking accurate information on the emerging proposals in Congress,” the senators wrote. “Without a doubt, reforming health care in America is one of the most monumental and far-reaching undertakings considered by this body in decades. We believe the American public’s participation in this process is critical to our overall success of creating a bill that lowers healthcare costs and offers access to quality and affordable health care for all Americans.”

Of course, letting people know what their supposed representatives are voting on scares Reid and his colleagues who are dedicated to nationalizing the health care system.
