In the United States Senate today, a repeal attempt on the year-old health care law went down to defeat. The vote was 47-51, ending in a party-line defeat for the Republicans.
Nebraskan Senator Ben Nelson remarked: "There are a lot of good parts in the bill and some that I will work to improve. The repealers already have health care. But they're ready, willing and eager to take it away from hundreds of thousands of Nebraskans."
