“Public Option” Still Not Dead

Posted on October 15, 2009

From the NY Times:

The left still seems to be trying to figure out how to get a “public option” into the mix.  Either established from the beginning, or enacted after a “trigger”, I believe it is inevitable. 

If it isn’t established directly, it wouldn’t be difficult for Congress to write language in the bill making it impossible for private insurers to comply, and therefore trigger the government option.

I’ve   blogged earlier  that Obama has been quietly working behind the scenes for a government plan.  And personally, I’m sure we’ll get it one way or another.
