Hatch: It Ain't Over

Not so fast, says Sen. Orrin Hatch. “If those people think they’re only going to vote on this once, they’re nuts,” said the Utah Republican, who is known for his bipartisanship, on Saturday. Hatch promised that the Senate would send the final bill back to the House once more to vote based on points of order which would alter the measure. He also questioned the constitutionality of Sunday's vote. On Saturday, the House abandoned plans to use a form of parliamentary procedure known as "deem and pass," which had rankled opponents.
