Potential Pitfalls for the Health Care Bill as It Moves to Conference

By: Monday December 21, 2009 6:03 am

The conference report on the health care reform bill can be filibustered, and obviously the axis of Nelson and Lieberman, etc., will be watching any alterations to the bill closely and making known their objections. However, there are also substantial objections among coalitions in the House, many of which are in conflict with the compromises made in the Senate. Vote margins are thin as well. Don’t etch passage of this bill in stone just yet.

 

Reid Says No Time for Conference, but Takes Off for Fundraiser

Reid’s flim-flamming arrogance is infuriating. He thinks his power as Majority Leader is to be used for nothing better than his own personal advancement. He won’t use it to push Joe Lieberman and Blanche Lincoln, but campaign cash? The whole country can wait!

Call likely Nevada Democratic voters and make sure they know what he is doing.
