Rep. Jim Matheson is in the spotlight as Democrats try to find 216 votes to pass healthcare reform.
The Washington Examiner highlights 18 Democrats in the House who will decide the ultimate fate on healthcare reform.
Jim Matheson, Utah – Just as he began to contemplate his vote, President Obama appointed his brother Scott to a federal judgeship. Good timing. Matheson told The Deseret News that he is undecided. "He has not announced how he will vote," his office told The Examiner.
There is some speculation that President Obama nominated Rep. Matheson’s brother Scott to the federal bench as a quid pro quo for his vote in favor of the healthcare bill. Senator Orrin Hatch says that speculation is baseless.
