Durbin: "More Conservative Approach" Required For Health Care

The Hill: A "more conservative approach" to raising revenues to finance healthcare reform will probably be needed in the Senate's proposed legislation, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Monday.

Durbin seemed to nix a House-led proposal to impose a surtax on wealthy Americans in order to pay for healthcare reform, a top initiative for President Obama and Democrats in control of Congress.

"We, of course, are hoping for bipartisan support which means probably a more conservative approach when it comes to revenue," Durbin said of the progress on healthcare legislation in the Senate during an appearance on MSNBC.
