American Grandstand, With Orrin Hatch and Lamar Alexander

It's never too soon for ridiculous political posturing:
Today, Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee Ranking Member Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) introduced legislation, the American Liberty Restoration Act, repealing the individual insurance mandate that is a central tenet of the President’s health care law.
The insurance industry, of course, requires the mandate in order to provide coverage without regard for preexisting conditions. If it appeared that the entire bill were going to be left in place as is, except for the mandate, that industry would quite obviously be displeased.

I wonder, if Harry Reid allows the bill to come to vote will we see yet another example of a Republican filibustering his own bill?
