Health Care Cloture Vote Officially Scheduled For 8PM Saturday Night

Posted: Nov 19, 2009 5:32 PM
Reid just filed cloture on the motion to proceed with HR 3590, which is the bill that will eventually be the official health care reform legislation. The actual vote will be on Saturday night at 8pm.

This means three things:

1) Reid is flat-out ignoring the 72-hour window to "read the bill" that pretty much everyone and their mother has requested.

2) Reid is dropping a bill that will influence the health of every man, woman and child in America at 8PM on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Perhaps this is in response to the fact that over half of Americans are terrified of health care reform, and only 40% support it?

3) Most alarmingly, Reid wouldn't drop the bill unless he was fairly confident he could get it passed.
