Republican in ‘Gang of Six’ wants health care reform in ‘smaller parts’ instead of one bill.

Earlier this month, Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), the most conservative member of the “Gang of Six” working on a compromise health care bill in the Senate Finance Committee, argued against a Sept. 15 deadline for the bill by saying that he was “committed to getting health care reform right, not finishing a bill by some arbitrary date.” “We’re making progress, but we still have several significant, outstanding items to work on,” said Enzi. But, as Huffington Post’s Sam Stein points out, Enzi indicated to a local crowd yesterday that he disagrees with the entire approach the Finance Committee is taking:

Enzi also said that he supported Sen. Kent Conrad’s (D-ND) co-op idea. “Small business health plans are one way of increasing choices,” said Enzi. “Co-ops will increase choice.”
