Now that his comment has received national attention, his spokesperson is backtracking on his behalf. She said it would be wrong to say though that he would vote no on the Senate Health Care bill without the fixes right now.
McNerney voted yes in November when the House voted in November.
"Audience members decried the health insurance industry's plans to raise premiums next year and the prohibitive cost of healthcare for those who are uninsured," Michael Moore of The Morgan Hill Times wrote, "McNerney criticized the current version of healthcare reform passed by the U.S. Senate for the deals it makes with certain states, its lack of a public option and the inadequate number of people it extends coverage to. He said he would not vote in favor of that version of the bill if it comes back to the House."
