An early morning vote today, as the Republican- dominated House approves Medicare prescription drug legislation.
The vote mainly followed party lines, and sends the measure to an uncertain destiny in the Senate.
One Republican calls it "a giant step forward for seniors in America."
But Democrats say it's an attack on Medicare.
The bill would provide 320- billion dollars over the next decade to establish Medicare prescription drug coverage through private insurance companies.

If you can stop or slow down that vibration the person doesn't snore as much.

In a filing yesterday in Bedford County Circuit Court, the National D-Day Memorial Foundation says it wants to see proof that it still owes the monument's main builder and architect nearly three million dollars.
The two creditors filed lawsuits against the foundation earlier this month to force it to repay its debt.
If the foundation can't pay in a timely fashion, the creditors asked that the memorial be sold to raise money.
