Those Wacky Republicans

The Senate adjourned at 2:55 AM this morning without voting on the package of amendments to the original Senate health bill that was passed by the House along with the Senate bill. Republicans are seeking to delay this vote, even though they all think that the amendments make the bill much better. You have to love this strategy of fighting tooth and nail against a bill that they think is a good idea.

Oh, and I am pleased to note that somehow the health bill has acquired a proper name, The Affordable Care Act. I am not sure where this name came from, since I am quite sure it was never read out by the House clerk Sunday night, but who am I to question these things?
