Clock starts on health bill

Posted By on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 at 2:16 PM

You can go here for the text of health legislation that will come to a vote Sunday. The posting starts the required 72-hour clock for consideration before a vote. Republicans will talk about process and their effort to defeat a procedure they've used many times themselves. Perhaps somebody will care more about insuring the uninsured and controlling health care costs.

All three Democratic representatives from Arkansas voted in the majority on the Republican effort to prohibit the "deem and pass" process for approval of the Senate health bill and changes.
