Senate Democrats are one vote closer to getting their health care reform bill to the floor. Nebraska U-S Senator Ben Nelson says this morning, he will vote yes on the motion to procede with debate.
“I will vote for the motion to proceed to bring that debate on to the Senate floor. The Senate should start trying tio fix a health care system that costs too much and delivers too little for Nebraskans.”
Opponents have said the cloture vote would be only chance to stop a bill including a public option or abortion funding. Nelson says that’s not true, and that he will join a filibuster of the bill if he’s not satisfied with the way the debate progresses.
