Schedule of Today's Votes [Daniel Foster]
If all goes according to the Democrats' plan, here is a timeline for today's votes:
2 p.m.: The House will debate for one hour the rules of debate for the reconciliation bill and the Senate bill.
3 p.m.: The House will vote to end debate and vote on the rules of the debate.
3:15 p.m.: The House will debate the reconciliation package for two hours.
5:15 p.m.: The House will vote on the reconciliation package.
5:30 p.m.: The House will debate for 15 minutes on a Republican substitute and then vote on the substitute.
6 p.m.: The House will vote on the final reconciliation package.
6:15 p.m.: If the reconciliation bill passes, the House will immediately vote on the Senate bill, without debate.
UPDATE: A senior Republican House staffer e-mails: "I saw your timeline per the Dems. The timing is probably optimistic. I'd say the vote will be much later than 6:15. Definitely after 7."
