House debate on the Affordable Health Care for America Act could potentially spill over into next week, although the immediate goal is to vote on the bill by Saturday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said during a teleconference sponsored by Families USA.
“Assuming we follow the schedule we have set, the expectation is to finish debate on the bill” and vote on its passage Saturday evening, Hoyer said. That's provided there are no delay tactics by Republican members, he added. “We could make additional time if needed.”
