SMELL THE COFFEE: Arkansas demonstrators paid a call on John Boozman's house this morning to offer him coffee as a "wake up call" on the health legislation. He didn't wake up.
A constituent who called Sen. John Boozman's
office reports that she was told the senator is a "yes" on the Better Care Reconciliation Act.
But what's being voted on today?
Sen. Tom Cotton laid out the battle plan in an interview with KARN
. Today's vote is just to allow a full debate. And more pressure on Republican senators to get on board the devastation of Obamacare.
Cotton says he still can't say how he'll vote.
UPDATE: A further constituent call to Boozman clarified that he's voting just for debate today — the talking point developed by leadership. But he still favors repeal and replacement within two years. A punt for now; destruction of health coverage to come.
