He voted in favor of the healthcare overhaul bill, but during a visit to WDEL, Delaware's junior Senator slammed some of the dealmaking that secured some Democratic votes.

Ted KAUFMAN told WDEL's Rick Jensen unlike Nebraska's Ben Nelson and Louisiana's Mary Landrieu, he didn't seek a sweetheart deal for his state at the expense of the others.

KAUFMAN said he spent most of his time trying to pass an amendment designed to rein in healthcare fraud, which he says costs between 75 billion and 220 billion dollars each year.
