Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) “on Friday told a Nebraska radio station that he’s open to voting for a health care reform package under reconciliation,” Roll Call reports.
“We’ll have to see what the final package is, and I’ll make a decision,” Nelson told KLIN in Lincoln. “I don’t know what the final cost is. I worry that it’s now up to $950 billion. I’d like to see a final score, see what it is and make a decision then.”
“I’m not going to use reconciliation as a principle to be against this. It’s my least favorite way to do something. It’s only after everything else fails, when there’s obstruction going on,” Nelson said.
