    Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday turned back a Republican amendment to wait 72 hours and require a full cost estimate before the final committee vote on the health care reform bill.



    It was the committee's first vote out of more than 500 amendments awaiting them, in what has already been a contentious mark-up session.
    The amendment would have delayed a vote on the final bill for about two weeks to allow the Congressional Budget Office to complete its final analysis on the cost and implications of the legislation.



    Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln was the only Democrat to vote with Republicans for the amendment, further signaling that she may be an attractive swing vote for Republicans.

    Typical, they want no one to know what they are voting for.

    What happened to transparancy? To having all bills posted online for full scrutiny before voting?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
