Health Reform Debate Could Move to Senate

As Republicans set on repealing health care reform continue to push their efforts, rumors are circulating that the Senate might place a vote on the floor. It has long been assumed Republicans would not have enough power to get a vote on the Senate floor, but now top senators are saying that this may not be true.

Republicans Push to Make Democrats Uncomfortable

Ever since the House passed a procedural vote this month to repeal the health care reform law, lawmakers have assumed the vote would never make it to the Senate floor since Democrats still have control. However, on Sunday, top senators in both parties said Republicans may be able to push their way to a Senate vote after all.

While the vote is not likely to reach the floor in the same manner that it did in the House, some think that it may be placed in some other type of legislation.

Most don’t expect the Senate to pass the vote even if it does reach the floor since most Democrats are in favor of keeping the health insurance-based law intact. But with many Democrats looking to be re-elected in 2012, they could have to make an uncomfortable decision when choosing which way to vote.

While many agree it’s very possible for Republicans to force some type of repeal legislation to reach the Senate floor, there’s no doubt they will face hurdles along the way.

Senate Democrats are preparing to make matters difficult for Republicans by painting them as enemies trying to take benefits of the law away from Americans. They plan to force votes on popular portions of the law if Republicans force the repeal, including the provision that allows children to remain on their parents’ insurance policies until the age of 26.

However, even if Republicans are able to pass their version of the repeal in the Senate, Democrats have expressed their comfort with knowing that President Barack Obama will veto it.

As for how Americans feel about the repeal, according to a poll conducted by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News last week, 46 percent were opposed to repealing the law while 45 percent were in favor of doing so. This indecisiveness could make matters even more difficult for lawmakers deciding how to vote.

While it currently looks like the odds of repeal are in favor of the Democrats, no one is sure of what could happen. With both Congress and the nation feeling torn about the vote, we may be surprised by the eventual outcome of health care reform.
