HOUSE VOTE ANTICIPATED THIS WEEK

The House will most likely begin debate on its health restructuring legislation Friday afternoon, allowing few, if any, amendments despite its many rationing dangers. A vote on passage could occur as early as Friday or Saturday but could slip to Monday or Tuesday of next week. A manager's amendment was released late last night. Rules Chair Louise Slaughter (D-NY) told reporters this afternoon that Democrats intend to vote on the legislation on Saturday evening.

On the Senate side, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has said that he won't rush things in order to meet a deadline. It has been reported that inside sources are indicating that although it is possible to compete a bill by the end of the year, it is more likely slip into 2010.
