In an effort to pass health care reform, the Senate majority whip says the debate over the latest bill will be an “open process.”

On Sunday, Texas Senator John Cornyn claimed republicans and democrats will be able to offer an amendment to the current draft.

He also blasted democrats for their lack of cooperation, saying if the left won’t participate in health care reform GOP leaders will have to come up with another plan.

Cornyn also expects a vote on the latest bill to take place when Arizona Senator John McCain returns to Congress once he recovers from surgery.

The vote on the Senate’s health care legislation was supposed to take place this week, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the vote will be delayed until McCain returns.

    what a novel idea
    try and do what the founding fathers set up our government to do
    need to see all the professional politicians names who aren’t contributing
    to write this bill and vote them all out

    That would be a nice change from the secretive morons of the DNC!! There idea of open debate is after the bill is passed you can biach about it after words in the open!! As far as asking for their input the answer is “not in this life time”!! We ill allow you the same amount of input you allowed the RNC during the O’stupid debacle!!
