Cornhusker Kickback senator wants to junk the individual mandate

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) is a little late to the ObamaCare repeal party:

Speaking to more than 150 insurance brokers, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) called the individual mandate “the biggest sticking point” in the health reform law.

“It’s time to change the mandate,” Nelson told members of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), gathered in Washington for their “Day on the Hill” event. “People don’t like mandates. I don’t think it’s a good idea.”

You don’t think it’s a good idea…but you voted for it. Nelson has also called for undoing the 1099 provision in ObamaCare, raising the question of whether he ever bothered to read the massive bill before voting to foist it on the nation against its will.
