    So this means that the senate bill has to be approved in the house as-is for the process to go forward, if I am reading this article right.
    That seems to be what Pelosi has been working towards.


    the best part of the article is here:
    "Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) moved Thursday to put Senate Republicans on the defensive over health care, sending a letter to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in which he dared the GOP to vote against reform."

    I wonder if he "double dog dared" him.

    That's a good indication of the maturity level of our so-called leaders.

    legislative tactics are part of the democratic framework of our system.

    I am still awed by the parliamentary maneuvers of the smaht pols of either party.

    Pass the Senate bill as-is? I forgot this was in the Senate bill until my dad reminded me today:
