That Was Such Fun…

…let’s do it again

Washington (CNN) — In a marathon Senate session that lasted into the wee hours of Thursday, Republicans kept their vow to use every parliamentary tool available to undermine the recently enacted health care reform law.

In the end, they found violations in two provisions, forcing the bill back to the House for another vote.

The GOP launched its attempt to amend or kill legislation expanding the new law in a Senate session that finally adjourned at 2:45 a.m. Thursday.

…But after hours, the Republicans found two minor provisions related to higher education that violate Senate procedure. These provisions have to be removed from bill, and then it has to be voted on by the House again, said Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Let’s see how it goes this time.

Funny, if people actually read these bills before forcing votes on them then these things might not happen.
