September 30, 2009

BillNelsonThe Palm Beach Post reports, “Confirming his reputation as a swing vote on health care reform, Florida’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson on Tuesday was one of five Dems to join all 10 Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee to vote against a proposal to create a government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers”

“Nelson later voted for a more modest public-option proposal in the committee. That measure failed 13-10, with three of Nelson’s Democratic colleagues joining Republicans in voting no.”
