Developing. Nancy Pelosi rejects Senate Health Care Bill due to lack of support in the House.
According to The Hill:
The House lacks the votes to pass the Senate's healthcare bill, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday.
Pelosi threw cold water on the idea that the House could muster enough support to pass the Senate's health bill, which includes a number of provisions liberals in the House find distasteful.
"I don't see the votes for it at this time," Pelosi told reporters during her weekly press conference. "The members have been very clear."
At this time, the bill appears to be near dead. It hasn't taken long for Democrats to read into the meanings of recent major electoral losses.
