Verbal Sparring Over Potential Senate Vote on Health Care
New York Times

Democrats and Republicans in the Senate waged a war of words on Sunday over efforts to force what would most likely be a symbolic vote on repealing the Obama administration’s health care law. Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, repeated his promise to bring the repeal measure up for a vote. He first made the pledge on Wednesday after the House voted 245 to 189 to repeal the law.
