Speaking to “more than 150 insurance brokers, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) called the individual mandate ‘the biggest sticking point’ in the health reform law,” POLITICO reports.
“It’s time to change the mandate,” Nelson told members of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), gathered in Washington for their “Day on the Hill” event. “People don’t like mandates. I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
Nelson supports “the health reform law but has also emerged as a leader in exploring options to the individual mandate, a health reform provision now ruled unconstitutional by two federal judges.”
