    GOP Loses Fight With Democrats Over Health Votes - ABC News


    House GOP loses effort to limit Democrats' tactics for voting on health care overhaul bill
    WASHINGTON March 18, 2010 (AP)
    The Associated Press

    Republicans have lost an effort to force House Democrats to hold a direct vote on the health overhaul bill.

    Democrats want to use a special procedure that would let the House automatically approve the $940 billion measure when lawmakers vote to begin debating a separate proposal that would revise that big health bill.

    Democratic leaders hope this maneuver would ease the political pain for lawmakers hesitant about voting directly on the giant health legislation — which the Senate has approved.

    Republicans tried to block that move, but Democrats in the House prevailed by a 222-203 vote on Thursday.

    The House is set to debate the health bill on Sunday.

    They're deluding themselves if they actually believe this.

    That's your answer?

    But yeah...probably. It sounds like they are scared to move on it immediately. I wonder why?

    How come Nancy isn't out there on the front steps doing the Running Man and screaming "IN YOUR FACE, FUCKERS!!!" as she sprints to the White House to get a signature?

    You're confusing Speaker Pelosi with the likes of Bachmann.
