HuffPo is reporting that Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) is prepared to break from the Gang of Six negotiations and vote to pursue the budget reconciliation process which would allow senators to approve the more contentious parts of the Health Insurance Reform legislation to pass through with a 51+ majority vote thus overriding any possibility of a filibuster (at least in theory, there are still some concerns about using this move for non-budgetary legislation).

Thats all I have for now, will update post once I hear more details. 😎

Morning inbox…

Well to sum up the stories that came to my inbox this morning it looks like we’re still talking about the C.I.A./detainee abuse cases (NYT), more loonie birther coverage (HuffPo) and of course the continuing Health Insurance debate with the republicans now trying to attach a Senior’s Health “Bill of Rights” which the AARP is protesting (WaPo).
