Guess Obama Can’t Buy This Democrat’s Vote
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Congressman Jim Matheson announced Saturday he will vote against President Obama’s health care plan.
In a statement, Matheson said the legislation “is too expensive, contains too many special deals, does not contain health care costs and will result in increases in health insurance premiums.”
Matheson said improving health care and providing affordable coverage in Utah will remain “critical” to him, but said he believes supporting the “wrong kind of reform” which will “increase health care costs” will hurt the nation more than it will help.
For those reasons, Matheson said he will vote ‘no’ to the president’s massive health care overhaul. The vote is set to take place in Washington, D.C. Sunday.
Makes me wonder if The Won will now withdraw the nomination of Scott Matheson, Jr. to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals (which, in all honestly, he appears qualified for).
