Oops! House Has to Vote on Health Care Reform Again!

House Democrats want to put their difficult vote to take over health care behind them., but they can't do that yet. The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled two minor provisions relating to "Pell Grants" violate reconciliation budget rules.
Spokesman Jim Manley said Republicans consulting with the Senate parliamentarian had found "two minor provisions" that violate budget rules. The two provisions, dealing with Pell grants for low-income college students, will have to be removed from the bill.

Once those provisions are deleted and the Senate passes the measure, the House will have to approve the legislation before sending it to Obama for his signature. Manley said he was confident the House would do so with no problems.

House Democrats should note this CBS poll released Wednesday showing 62% of Americans want Republicans to keep fighting Democrats takeover of Health care.

The most shocking revelation in this poll was 41% of Democrats want Republicans to keep fighting.
