Some Senate Republicans engaged in a procedural spat with a group of Senate Democrats during debate amendment on healthcare reform legislation.

Senate Republicans attempted to get Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to yield his time for questions but he declined to yield his time. "We have the floor," Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and he kept saying when GOPers lead by Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) asked him to yield.

Franken appeared enlivened during the exchange.

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), who is presiding over the Senate, had to gavel down both Franken and Thune.

Franken, Brown and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are currently on the floor debating their amendment stripping the Senate healthcare bill of the excise tax on high-cost healthcare plans.
