First Health Vote Set for Saturday, Reid Won’t Use Budget Reconciliation

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said today “the first key test vote on his health care bill will be taken Saturday, but he declined to say whether he has 60 senators lined up,” POLITICO reports.

“We will find out when the votes are taken,” he told reporters at a midday event.

Reid also said “he would not use a procedural maneuver known as reconciliation to pass the bill – a shift from previous statements when he would say all options are on the table.”

“I’m not using reconciliation,” he said flatly.

Update: The vote will occur at 8 p.m. Washington D.C. time.
