8. Rockefeller may not support reconciliation
Rockefeller Not Inclined To Support Reconciliation For The Public Plan

But Rockefeller said he felt sufficiently comfortable with the current construct of the Senate's legislation (which lacks a public plan) in part because it contains a national non-profit system that is based on the plan federal employees enjoy, and contains provisions that require insurance companies to spend a high percentage of their capital on medical coverage.
