Sen. Nelson wants expedited Supreme Court ruling on healthcare law

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said on the floor today that the Senate should consider a resolution that asks the Supreme Court for an expedited review of last year's healthcare overhaul. Nelson has already introduced the resolution, which he said would help prevent fighting over the law in the years ahead.

"We ought to do the right thing and ask the high court to rule quickly so we don’t keep arguing over this for the next several years," Nelson said today.

Nelson added that his preference is to fix the law, not repeal it. Later today, the Senate will vote on a Republican repeal measure.
