Sanders, a Remaining Holdout, Working on Health Clinic Deal

Sen. Bernie Sanders, one of the remaining holdouts on supporting the Senate health care bill, is working on a provision with Sen. Ron Wyden to expand the role of health clinics.

“I want to salute you, Sen. Wyden, as well as Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for one particular provision in here,” Sen. Dick Durbin said on the Senate floor moments ago. “We don’t have the details yet, but we believe that this will result in the most dramatic expansion of health care clinics across America.”

Sen. Wyden followed him on the floor to speak about the proposal, and said the clinics “will be like farmers’ markets.”

Sanders, an avowed socialist who wants a single-payer health care system, has said he would not vote for the current bill when it comes to a final vote, but remains undecided on whether or not to vote on the key cloture motion. Expanding health clinics could be one way to win him over.
