Dems defeat GOP resolution to force a VOTE on the Senate bill

Subject: txt 1st hcare =
House Democrats turned back an effort by Republicans Thursday to prevent them from using the so-called Slaughter Solution to enact the Senate's health care bill. Democrats defeated a resolution, 222-203, that Republicans had offered in an attempt to block the majority from approving the Senate's bill without directly voting on it. The afternoon roll call served as something of a test vote for fence-sitting Democrats.
