I’ve not been following this because I believe the health care bill will be decided by a conference committee meeting in a smoke filled room. But today Senator Ben Nelson became the 60th vote to move the ball down the court.
Did Nelson use abortion? I don’t know but I found this statement in the Washington Post troubling:
Nelson also secured favors for his home state and to benefit different factions of the health-insurance industry.
The health bill is pretty unpopular and may lead to a 2010 shift in the Congress. I guess I should say, I hope it does.
