U.S. Senate Votes to Invoke Cloture and Begin Debate on Senate Health Care Bill - Video 11/21/09

Part 1 - First Senate Cloture Vote on Senate Health Care Bill


Part 2 - First Senate Cloture Vote on Senate Health Care Bill


The U.S. Senate tonight voted 60-39 to invoke Cloture on the Senate Health Care Bill, meaning it now will move to the floor of the Senate for Debate. It does NOT mean the bill has passed the Senate. It will now move to an amendment phase, and before moving to a vote on final passage, the bill would have to pass another 60 vote threshold cloture vote to close debate / amendments and move to a final vote. At least three senators who voted for cloture tonight, have said they may not vote for the second cloture vote unless the bill changes drastically: Sen. Joe Lieberman, Sen. Mary Landrieu, and Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

Congratulations to Harry Reid and all those who voted to move the health care reform bill forward. Now lets get us some health care reform! Go team!

Actually it is women in politics. There was a study done that no women in government has ever voted for less government or freedom for people.

Oh, come on, cartucho, think a bit before you post silly sexist comments.

What about the vaunted Governor Palin, just to cite a recent example? Kay Bailey Hutchison? Michele Bachmann?
