    Re: House leaders plan separate health vote, rejecting 'deem and pass'

    Since this thread is about the House and not the Senate, and the House leadership's wise decision to hold two separate votes, the first on the reconciliation bill and only the second on the Senate's flawed health care reform bill; I wonder what people think about that: we pass the corrections first, then the underlying bill.

    I say: whatever!

    No, they vote on one, then the other. Passage is not guaranteed.

    Explain. I think you're saying that they could pass the reconciliation and not the underlying Senate bill. Or vice versa (although I doubt they'll bring the Senate bill up if the reconciliation bill fails).

    Personally I think there'll be two votes, but the totals will be virtually identical.

    Quite frankly I barely even understand what's going on anymore. The Democrats have managed to run hard to the right in a process of negotiating with their own party, and at the end of it, can barely pass a bill in what was supposed to be the more-progressive House!

    At this point I think you could get more votes for single-payer. Plus, that would be way better.
