Senate Health Week Ends Anticlimatically
I am in rainy Madison Wisconsin, attending my daughter's graduation (ON WISCONSIN!) from the University of Wisconsin so I am a little delinquent in reporting that the Senate Health Week ended anticlimatically. On Thursday night, the Senate Republican majority was only able to round up 55 votes -- five short of the 60 votes needed to end the filibuster over Sen. Enzi's small business health care reform bill. I think that's no great surprise.
My family and I visited the Mustard Museum in nearby Mount Horeb, Wisconsin today. Much fun!
