WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he will schedule a vote on whether to open debate on a healthcare overhaul in a “couple of hours.” “Today’s vote to begin debate is the first step, and we should take it,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling America that you’re just fine with the Obamcare nightmare.”
