Reid Includes Public Option in The Senate Health Care Bill


Senator Harry Reid announced today that a public option would be included in the Senate bill for vote.  It is unclear how may Democratic votes are there to ensure passage, but Senator Reid feels confident that the votes will be there.  Despite the likely  possibility of losing support from the lone Republican to support health care legislation, the Democrats are pressing forward with the provision to include the public option.  Senator Olympia Snow of Maine, the only Republican to support  the finance committee bill has vowed to not support any bill that includes a public option.
