Senate Democrats to Allow Early Vote on Health Care Repeal
New York Times

Senate Democrats, answering a challenge by Republicans pushing to overturn President Obama’s health care overhaul, said the Senate would vote soon, perhaps as early as Wednesday, on a repeal measure, and that they were certain that it would be defeated. The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said he had put forward the repeal measure, which was approved overwhelmingly by the Republican-controlled House last month, as his first amendment to an aviation industry bill that was already on the Senate floor on Tuesday.
