Sen. Ben Nelson tells the Hill that the language in Harry Reid’s Senate health care bill does not go far enough in making sure that federal tax dollars are not paying for abortion:
“We have looked at the language,” Nelson told The Hill. “That language is not language that I would prefer.”
“I think you need to have it eminently clear that no dollars that are federal tax dollars, directly or indirectly, are used to pay for abortions and it needs to be totally clear. [It’s] not clear enough, I don’t think,” Nelson said.
Nelson is one of a few Democrats who remains uncommitted on whether he will vote to bring the bill to the Senate floor, a key procedural hurdle scheduled to take place on Saturday.
