Live Stream Senate Health Care Debate

Via Memeorandum The Hill reports Harry Reid can't understand why anyone would be opposed to a vote opening the debate, in fact he thinks that is positively Orwellian:
"Now he said, anyone who votes for this is going to have a lot of explaining to do," Reid said during his floor speech today. "Now that is really Orwellian. That is Orwellian. Have a lot of explaing to do if they allow a debate to continue?"

Reid urged senators to support the motion to proceed scheduled for 8 p.m., saying that is only a motion to continue debate, not a vote for the legislation itself.
"All were asking today is to have a debate on it. I mean, why would anyone be afraid in supposedly the greatest debating society in the world to debate healthcare," he said. "What are they afraid of?"
They're afraid of the shark infested waters after they walk the plank Harry.  The people to watch according to  Politico:
 things were looking good at daybreak, as Reid can be reasonably confident of 59 votes, with Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) a yes vote and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) leaning yes. The holdout: Sen.Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), who has been a fan of reform generally but faces a tough 2010 re-election fight.
We'll likely see a number of Republican television ads in the making as this vote will surely be fodder in the coming midterms.  Here is the live stream of the Senate debate for those who want to follow along:
