HOUSE AIDES: Public Option Making Comeback

Via a politically connected friend on Facebook:

Info from D.C. is that a public option has enough support to pass in the House. Blue Dogs caving and Black Caucus pushing hard on legislators for the public option. Plan is next week.

Is anyone else hearing the same sort of information?

I did not hear that exact quote, CY. All my sources could tell me was that we're out of diapers and that I should go get some.

:( Dang, I wish I had more 'sources'.

I'm not sure who but a Democrat introduced an amendment that would make public option type insurance up to the individual states. Not sure if that's what you may be referring to.

Public option never left the House. Public option was always in the House bill(s) without a concern of passing. It's getting it through the Senate that's going to be difficult if not impossible.

Actually they are going to pass an EMPTY bill, then write it after it passes anyway the Dems want. Here is the link to what is sneaking around the edge on this issue.

Reid is looking to work with the House to flummox everyone with a tax bill to mix everyone up and push this through.

Sounds like pure spin spam from the left wing ginned up to create a self-fulfilling movement. If they had the votes they would bring it to the foor and get it done. All the speculation and rumor is meaningless. The dems can't decide if they want to be on record voting for deficit creating DMV Kevorkian care that takes choice away from consumers and has failed in every country it has been tried or a rational plan of reform proposed by Republicans which would take more time to hammer out.
