Reid: Lawmakers Will Work Week-ends on Health Care
From MSNBC. Sorry, "just say no" Republicans. Looks like you will have to pay a price for stalling this bill. Say good-bye to your week-ends. Oh, my, they may need to cancel that golf outing or trip to the Spa! I really don't get it-why would most GOP members not want to have some input on the final bill by having serious discussions and debate? I think Snowe and Collins (along with most Blue Dogs) will be serious at this stage but most in the GOP (along with their pal Lieberman) have decided that if they can't just kill the bill, they will delay, delay, delay. Sad but that's the extend of "work" for some who have been voted in.
WASHINGTON - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says lawmakers will work weekends to complete a sweeping health care bill because "nothing can be more important than this."
Senate debate is getting under way Monday afternoon on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Reid, D-Nev., said the nation's health care system has created an economic crisis for thousands of Americans and Congress needs to address the problem.
Reid said the Senate will work Saturdays and Sundays in December. He said: "There's not an issue more important than finishing this legislation."
