Wash Examiner — Senators skeptical that health care deal is near

Sens. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., and Ben Nelson, D-Neb., said they would vote against the proposal unless significant changes were made, which leaves Democrats at least two votes shy of the 60 votes they need to pass the bill.

“The opposition to it has been growing as the week has gone on,” Lieberman said on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” adding, “There are not 60 votes for health care reform in the Senate now.”
