Webb declares

Jim Webb has finally released a statement declaring his position on the Obamacare bill pending in the Senate. Webb turns out to be about as big a mealy-mouthed disappointment as I feared:

Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) announced Sunday evening he will support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) $871 billion health care reform package but warned that he could withhold his backing for the final bill as negotiated in the House-Senate conference committee if he is unhappy with any changes made to the legislation.

Roll Call quotes Webb’s statement at length in the story linked above, but “yada yada” would more than cover it.
