Sen. Ben Nelson Announces He Will Vote for Cloture and for Final Passage on Senate Health Care Bill - Video 12/19/09
Here is video of the statement Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson made this morning announcing that he will vote for cloture and for final passage on the Senate Health Care Bill. Nelson appears to be the crucial 60th vote the Democrats need to pass the bill.
Nelson did say he reserves the right to vote against what comes out of the conference committee that will have to reconcile the House and Senate Bills to come up with a Final Health Care Bill for passage:
"I reserve the right to vote against the next cloture vote, let me repeat it, I reserve the right to vote against the next cloture vote if there are material changes to this agreement in conference."
