Courtney to vote yes on health care bill

(CNN) - Rep. Joe Courtney, the Connecticut Democrat who had been undecided on how he would vote on the latest version of the House health care bill, announced on CNN Friday he will support the bill.

"We've spent the last 24 hours reviewing the package, which was finally released yesterday afternoon as well as the [Congressional Budget Office's] score," Courtney told CNN's Ali Velshi, "and I'm satisfied that there are adequate changes made to the Senate bill, the base bill, that address the issues that kept me in the undeclared column."

Courtney voted in favor of the original House bill late last year.

    "If the bill was bad, then Democrats would not be pushing it."

    The polls are closed... We have a winner in the "Funniest Thing That Has Ever Been Written On This Board" award...
