Kennedy Weighing Return Wednesday for Medicare Vote

Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) is considering coming back to the Senate for the first time since his brain cancer diagnosis to vote against a Republican filibuster on a Medicare bill, CNN reports.

Democrats last week fell one vote short of breaking the filibuster on a bill that would reverse a cut in Medicare payments to doctors.

The vote is expected later this afternoon.
