Health overhaul debate snags Senate pharmacy bill

FILE - In this Nov. 2, 2010 file photo, Sen. David Vitter, R-La. speaks in Kenner, La. A year after a meningitis outbreak from contaminated pain injections killed at least 64 people and sickened hundreds, Congress is bringing compounding pharmacies that custom-mix medications for bulk purchasers under more federal oversight. But before the bill gets to President Barack Obama for his signature, it first has to clear a hurdle put in its path by Vitter in his ongoing campaign to discredit the president’s health care overhaul. A test vote is scheduled for Tuesday evening. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
