Republicans have found two violations in the healthcare bill that will require the bill being sent back to the House for a revote.
 
According to a story on CNN.com, Republicans found violations in two provisions during a Thursday session that lasted until 2:45 a.m., and have presented amendments to those violations. Among the amendments is a provision to prevent the bill's planned Medicare cuts from being used to finance other programs, and the elimination of new penalties being imposed on businesses whose workers use federally subsidized insurance
 
From the story:
Senate Democrats easily defeated the first of 29 amendments introduced by Republicans, which challenged provisions in the bill such as those involving changes to Medicare funding.
 
Also defeated were attempts to send the measure to committee for reconsideration -- which would effectively kill it -- and other amendments intended to strip provisions from the bill.
 
But after hours, the Republicans found two minor provisions related to higher education that violate Senate procedure. These provisions have to be removed from bill, and then it has to be voted on by the House again, said Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
