Senate breaks health stalemate

New York Times, December 3, 2009

At the end of a third day of Senate debate over healthcare legislation, Democrats and Republicans said that they had broken an impasse over the question of how and when to vote on the first amendments, the New York Times reports. But even as lawmakers announced an agreement to begin voting, Democrats accused Republicans of stalling debate and obstructing the legislation. Republicans said it was unrealistic to expect quick action on such a big bill, and they denied they were stalling, reports the Times.
