If Tuesday was any guide, the last bit of debate will give Republicans one last chance to warn that the 2010 healthcare law is driving up healthcare costs and is a wet blanket on the U.S. economy, and will give Democrats one last chance to argue that the House should be considering some other bill that creates jobs.
A final vote is expected by 3 or 4 p.m. Wednesday. Along the way, the House is also expected to debate a rule for H.R. 4402, the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act (the House appears likely to start by debating that rule at around 12:30 p.m., then move to the final phase of debate for the healthcare repeal bill).
The Senate meets at 9:30 a.m. to continue work on S. 2237, the Small Business Jobs and Tax Relief Act. But the Senate might get through the day without holding any votes — on Tuesday, the chamber voted to end debate on a motion to proceed to the bill, which could mean a vote to proceed by Thursday.
