Democratic Leadership has told Mr. Boehner’s staff that there will be no vote on Health on the Floor before recess and we will leave Friday.
We still have no confirmation of plans to resume or end the Committee Markup.
David L. Cavicke
Republican Chief of Staff
Committee on Energy and Commerce
No word on who told Boehner this or in what language or context. But it appears all but certain that this is how things will play out.
