Keep Calling: We're Making a Difference

House To Drop “Deem And Pass” Strategy

It's hard to tell if this is a good thing or not as far as defeating the health care bill, but it does show that at least someone in Washington is getting the message that their shenanigans are not acceptable.

The current plan is to take three separate votes.

Vote #1 is on the "rule" which in essence is a resolution to set the terms for debate.

Vote #2 is a package of amendments, essentially demands for changes which the House expects the Senate to approve once the House House passes the Senate bill.

Vote #3 The Senate bill itself.

Meanwhile, pressure and dealing with Stupak continues- maybe even an executive order in exchange for a yes vote.
