Capitol Hill Update: Latest on Obamacare in the U.S. Senate

The office of the Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell, from Kentucky, is doing an outstanding job in providing frequent daily updates on the Democrats' socialized medicine scheme, known around Washington D.C. and the country as ObamaCare.

For example, Christian Coalition of America was informed by Leader McConnell's office on Friday that the Senate is back on Health Care today and there are currently two pending amendments:

  • Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's amendment #2870 which is a Sense of the Senate on Social Security and CLASS Act surpluses
  • Republican Senator Orrin Hatch motion's to commit the bill to the Finance Committee to prevent the cuts to Medicare Advantage

In addition, there are probably other votes on other amendments today and throughout this weekend.
