Notations On Our World (Special Edition): On Today's Vote in the United States Senate

The United States Senate voted on a procedural motion to move forward the Healthcare Legislation proposed by the US Senate Majority Leader.    Senator McCain returned after surgery to cast an affirmative vote to move the process forward.    He has said that he will not vote for the bill as it is currently written--which means that the legislation will fail as the Vice President had to break a 50-50 tie for the Republicans to score a win.

We join the team at the Bi-Partisan Policy Center in calling for Bi-Partisanship and echo what Senator McCain has noted.  We have noted this oru team just received courtesy of the team at the Bi-Partisan Policy Center feauturing Senator McCain's full Speech: 

BPC Agrees with Senator McCain's Call for Bipartisan Reform
Following the Senate's procedural vote on healthcare legislation, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) challenged his colleagues to move towards a bipartisan reform on health care. McCain urged members to trust one another, work together, and return to regular order; allowing committees to hold hearings and craft legislation.

The Bipartisan Policy Center believes sound policy is made when both parties put forth their best ideas, debate them openly and honestly, and forge hard-fought compromises.

We agree with Senator McCain's approach and applaud his call to action.
