Dem's Nationalized Health Care Vote Delayed?… Pelosi Doesn't Have the Votes
The democrat’s vote to take over the nation’s health care system may be delayed.
Speaker Pelosi apparently has bought off enough blue dogs, yet.
House Democrats acknowledged they don’t yet have the votes to pass a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s health care system, and signaled they may push back the vote until Sunday or early next week.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters in a conference call Friday that the make-or-break vote on President Barack Obama’s top priority that had been set for Saturday could face delay.
The apparent problem: Democrats have yet to resolve intraparty disputes over abortion funding and illegal immigrants’ access to health care.
