Senators are back in Washington D.C. after the holiday week to debate health care reform legislation. Politico reports, "Republicans want six weeks of debate — which would be enough to push the final vote past Christmas — and have an arsenal of stalling tactics. But Democrats can short-circuit the debate all at once, simply by reaching a deal on the public option and filing cloture on the bill, which would set up the final crucial test vote before final passage." C-SPAN's coverage begins at 3 p.m.—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said his colleagues should "expect daily votes on the bill, plus evening and weekend session."
