Murphy pushes for time-out before health care vote

From Jennifer Dlouhy in New York on the Potomac:
U.S. Rep. Scott Murphy (D-NY20) is asking his colleagues to sign on to a letter he wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., that would insist on the 72-hour time-out before any floor vote. “We believe that a 72-hour period for review is crucial before voting on a proposal as sweeping and impactful as health care reform legislation,” Murphy said in the letter he drafted to Pelosi and Hoyer. Murphy voted against the House version of the health care bill, and his letter is about the new version of the bill that will emerge soon from House-Senate deliberations.
