I may not help my party…

I may not help my party is the word coming from Democratic Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska.

According to the Huffington Post article by Sam Stein, “(Senator Ben Nelson) is not committed to helping his party block a Republican filibuster on health care legislation.”

Senator Nelson has been a skeptic of the public option for insurance coverage.

Now, with a possible 60-vote majority for the Democrats (if Paul Kirk is sworn-in) they can vote for cloture. The cloture vote would allow as simple majority rule vote on any bill.
