Vitter objection to Gillibrand amendment and counteroffer

Senator Gillibrand asked consent to set aside the pending amendment in order to call up Gillibrand amendment #1860 (disaster relief/emergency assistance for energy efficiency products). Senator Vitter also objected to calling up her amendment and asked consent to call up a series of amendments, and vote on his health care amendment and an alternative. Senator Wyden objected to his request. He then  asked the same consent he's asked several times today to vote on his bill with no amendments in order. Senator Wyden objected to this request. Finally, Senator Vitter objected to Gillibrand's original request.
