The plan is for the Senate to vote on a bill the House already passed and vote on amendments.
The 3 day rule won't apply to the bill that was already passed.

Ah, so technically they’re not breaking the rule if the name of the bill is the same even even though the language is completely different.
Reid only makes them break the spirit of the rule.

If they didn’t do it that way it would not pass Constitutional muster.

(I will give Obama credit for one thing- he is living proof that familiarity breeds contempt.)
FYI..Roll Call has an article posted at 11 am, to the effect that the Rules Committee is meeting Sunday..to pass the “rule” for any new bill that comes out of an agreement. Thus is NOT voting on a bill that the House has already passed.
