Health-bill battle will not get a recess

Wall Street Journal, November 12, 2009

Conservative groups are using the recess—one week for the House and three days for the Senate—to press lawmakers to vote no on the healthcare overhaul plans. Groups in favor of the Democratic health plan are equally active, the Journal reports.
