Healthcare reform

Day two debating amendments for the Senate Finance Committee's healthcare legislation.

It was a slow start with discussion over how the bill would affect senior citizens.

That's after the bipartisan gang of six disbanded and began pushing amendments on both sides.

Senator Chuck Grassley, who's on the committee, is disappointed by the arguing.

He says a bill will certainly pass the committee, but remains hopeful for more bipartisan support once it hits the full Senate floor.

A committee vote could come by the end of this week.
