After Accepting Scores Of GOP Amendments, Senate HELP Committee Moves Health Care Legislation On Party Line Vote – TPMDC (7/15/09):
The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee has voted along party to move its health care reform legislation out of committee. The panel has been in mark-up for weeks now, and along the way, has approved 160 Republican amendments–and for all that largesse, not a single member of the minority voted in its favor. I’ll pass along more details as they become available.
Bipartisanship for its own sake in the time of Obama.
