Democrat John Boccieri (OH-16) Ready to Cave on Healthcare

March 4, 2010

From Dem Rep John Boccieri, who voted No on the health bill last time, is now undecided on the Senate proposal, his office confirms. In a statement emailed my way, Boccieri said:

“After reviewing the President’s health care proposal and watching portions of his bipartisan health care summit, I’m encouraged the proposal contains important provisions to reduce fraud, waste, and abuse and reduce the deficit. I am hopeful that going forward from last week’s summit with bipartisan ideas, we can finally move toward providing affordable, quality coverage for everyone.”

Boccieri represents a new addition to the “undecided” camp, so expect him to be lobbied hard.
