Senate Prepares to Work Through Next Wednesday

Senators may keep slogging through debate on their health care overhaul until the day before Thanksgiving, according to an adjournment resolution the House approved Wednesday. That measure provided for the Senate to adjourn Friday — or next Wednesday. The House is set to break on Thursday or Friday of this week.But weary Senate staff should take heart: Reid has incentive to recess by the earlier date, since he is scheduled to appear at a thank-you barbecue for party volunteers in Las Vegas on Tuesday. Of course, the Senate schedule may not be entirely in Reid’s hands if Republicans follow through on their threat to have the entire health care reform bill read aloud on the floor.
