Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) believes more Republicans will vote for the health care reform bill in its final phase.

During an interview on Tuesday, Sen. Nelson told Tavis Smiley that, "You might see half a dozen to a dozen" Republicans voting for the bill.

Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) was the sole Republican to vote in favor of the health care reform bill passed by the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday.

Nelson believes Snowe's fellow Senator from Maine, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), will now seriously consider voting in favor of health care reform.
