There has never been a "Rush" on any of the proposals from the current congress, except in the minds of people who want to stand in thier way. Public Health Insurance, for instance, has been debated since the early 70's, since Nixon proposed it. That's 38 years of waiting and debate. If some people don't have an idea of what should go into a health bill by now, then they're just a bunch of morons. As far as the actual current legislation goes, it has already been discussed for the past 6 months, I think that's plenty of time to go over a bill. Of course obstructionists paid by the private insurance industry would love to see the legislation be delayed for another decade or so.
