View Full Version : U.S. Issues TPM: Dems Stop Amendment Requiring Full CBO Scoring Of Baucus Health Care Plan...

Last night, I reported that there could be a significant delay in the progress of health care reform legislation--that the committee could have to wait for weeks to get a complete CBO score before holding a final vote, or that, if the committee approves the legislation without a score, the full Senate will have to wait two weeks before taking up final health care legislation on the floor.

Right now in the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), is arguing in favor of an amendment sponsored by Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY), that would require the committee to wait until the final CBO score is completed before voting on it.

"I don't know what's happening that this has to be put on a fast track," she said.

Chairman Max Baucus doesn't support the proposal, and neither do most Democrats, but it's quite telling that Snowe does.

Late update: The Bunning amendment failed (Snowe's support notwithstanding), but the committee passed an alternative amendment that requires a preliminary CBO analysis be completed before a final vote. And that could still cause a few days' delay.

Maybe someone from the left can explain why it's a good thing not to get as much information as possible about this giant POS bill before they vote on it???

Remember the good old days when the democrats where screaming for openness and complaining about how republicans just shoved through legislation without letting them or the public read their bills and how they would NEVER do that if they were given control?

Yeah, me neither.

Good job, Eggbats! Good job!

The Obama administration has notified Congress of the State Department's intention to contribute $400,000 to foundations run by Muammar Qaddafi's two children $200,000 each for daughter Aisha and son Saif. Saif, you may recall, is the son who escorted the Lockerbie terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi home to a hero's welcome in Libya after President Obama sternly "warned" Qaddafi that there was to be no hero's welcome.

Illinois Republican congressman Mark Steven Kirk (House Appropriations Subcommittee on State/Foreign Operations) has sent Obama a letter asking him to rescind the funding.
