The AP reports:

Senate Finance Committee Democrats have rejected a GOP amendment that would have required a health overhaul bill to be available online for 72 hours before the committee votes.

(Via Instapundit.)

The reason Democrats gave is that, under the amendment, they would be required actually to write the bill before voting on it. I am not making this up.
