WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) secured commitments of support today to cross the 60 vote threshold for his legislation to repeal the health care bill's burdensome 1099 tax paperwork mandate.

With 60 cosponsors, I am confident we have the support to pass it and eliminate this problem once and for all.
