Health Care Schedule for Today

Posted: Mar 21, 2010 11:22 AM
This is it. The Super Bowl of health care. Democrats will try to force through their health care overhaul plan.

Via Dan Foster at NRO, here's how it'll go down:

2 p.m.: The House will debate for one hour the rules of debate for the reconciliation bill and the Senate bill.

3 p.m.: The House will vote to end debate and vote on the rules of the debate.

3:15 p.m.: The House will debate the reconciliation package for two hours.

5:15 p.m.: The House will vote on the reconciliation package.

5:30 p.m.: The House will debate for 15 minutes on a Republican substitute and then vote on the substitute.

6 p.m.: The House will vote on the final reconciliation package.

6:15 p.m.: If the reconciliation bill passes, the House will immediately vote on the Senate bill, without debate.

Not that this is set in stone; rumor is that the more off-schedule the Dems get, the more hesitant that they are that they have the votes. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. As we've seen, they're desperate, and ready to do anything and everything to get the necessary votes needed on board.

This is make or break. If you haven't called or e-mailed vulnerable Representatives yet, this is your day to do so. If you must, threaten to contribute to a vulnerable Congressman's electoral opponent. Money talks like nothing else.
