Rep. Snyder inclined to vote for healthcare in the House

Retiring Rep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.) said Thursday he's inclined to vote to advance healthcare reform in the House.

Snyder, who's previously said he's undecided on his vote for healthcare in the House, said he's leaning toward voting for the Senate healthcare bill when it comes up for a vote in the House, as well as the other votes to add fixes to it.

"I'm leaning to vote for it and the others. We haven't seen the words, we haven't seen the scoring," Snyder said during an appearance on Fox News. "I never like to make a final commitment until we actually see the words on paper, and have a chance for you to look at it, the people of Arkansas to look at it, and for all the analysts across the country to look at it."

Snyder's inclination doesn't necessarily change the math for House Democratic leaders, though. He voted for the House healthcare bill in November, and Democrats need to make up ground with some lawmakers who say they may swing from "yes" to "no" in the next round of votes. 

"I think what will happen is we'll get this bill out, with actual words and scoring, and we'll have a week or so to really examine it," Snyder said. "We will have learned from the debate that's happened over the past year, and move forward."
