Update: This sounds a bit more uncertain.
U.S. Rep. Michael Arcuri, D-Utica, said Tuesday he would vote against the Senate version of the health care bill that could soon go before the House of Representatives for approval.
Why? Arcuri doesn't like the "mega bill" approach, the prospect of reconciliation, and some differences in the Senate bill.
As his spokesman put it, "The congressman is very careful about evaluating each bill based on its own merits."
Outside of Tompkins County, that may possibly help his re-election bid this fall. Inside of Tompkins County, well, it won't.
I feel bad for Arcuri's Cortland Field Representative, Bob Messinger, who will be having office hours at Lansing Town Hall next Wednesday, March 10th, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.Posted by simon at March 3, 2010 12:46 PM in politics (national)
