UPDATE: Democrats Pull Amendment Because Of GOP Procedural Tactic

Posted: Dec 16, 2009 3:18 PM
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) withdrew the amendment that Sen. Tom Coburn had stalled (by requiring clerks to read it). The amendment itself dealt with single-payer health care, and after Sanders withdrew it, he proclaimed that single-payer "will come as surely as I stand here today," despite this setback.

Coburn had stalled the amendment after Sanders refused to allow the American people 72 hours to read amendments before the Senate voted on them.
