Vote-o-rama to start after 5pm

From NBC's Ken Strickland
Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus says the vote-o-rama on the amendments to the health reconciliation bill should start approximately at 5:10 pm ET.

He says there are 21 amendments pending, but he expects several more to be filed. Baucus adds that it usually takes an hour to vote on three amendments.

He expects the Senate to be voting beyond midnight.
