East Bay Democrat Could Help Derail Health Care Reform

Just days before the final vote, East Bay Congressman Jerry McNerney still hasn’t decided whether he will vote for President Obama’s sweeping health-care reform initiative. The Pleasanton Democrat, who is probably worried about his reelection this year in a district that includes significant numbers of Republicans, told the CoCo Times that he’s leaning toward voting yes, but won’t make up his mind until he thoroughly reviews the final reform package. McNerney is the only member of the Bay Area Congressional delegation who might oppose health-care reform when it comes up for a final vote on Sunday or Monday.
