Republicans send health care bill back to House for another vote

Because the House and Senate must pass identical versions of the bill to put the fixes into law, the reconciliation piece must now go back to the House for a second vote. [LEFT]
Senate Republicans have suceeded in forcing Democrats to send the health reform reconciliation bill back to the House for another vote, after Senate parliamentarian Alan Frumin ruled early Thursday morning that two minor provisions violated the chamber's rules and couldn’t be included in the final bill.
[/LEFT]

Democrats believe the provisions — technical changes to language about Pell Grants for low-income students – are so minor that they don’t threaten to derail the reconciliation package, which includes a series of fixes to the reform bill that has already been signed into law by President Barack Obama.

But clearly Democrats are anxious to put the health care voting behind them – given the painful history of the past year of close votes and near-death experiences on the bill – and want nothing to pop up now that could give them headaches.

And Republican's quickly and expeditiously lose again, as the Dem's pass health care for the 2nd time, and now Republican's are on the record for the 2nd time being against health care, and now against low income students getting expanded Pell and Stafford loans.

Thank you Republican's for doing most of the work to keep out of power....

A little late with this post. You are right the Republicans did sent the bill back to the House as they were able to object to two provisions and said it doesn't meet the Reconciliation rules so it had to be removed, forcing another vote in the House.

However, the House passed it about four hours prior to your post..........

Good thing Massachusetts elected Scott Brown to the Senate. He did a great job of stopping health care reform, didn't he?

Heckuva job, Brownie!
