Senate Republicans stand by plan to overhaul Medicare
Paul Kane, Amy Goldstein and Peter Wallsten
"Senate Republicans on Wednesday stood by a GOP plan to transform Medicare, one day after the party lost a conservative House district in Upstate New York amid a strong effort by Democrats to make that proposal the central issue.
"The measure was defeated in the Democratic-run Senate on Wednesday.
"But the unity among Republicans with only five out of 47 voting against it served as an important sign that party leaders remain wedded to a deficit-reduction plan that is a loyalty test for many GOP voters but is widely unpopular, according to polls."
