Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer to Offer Amendment Calling for "Public Option" Today"; Will Demand Roll Call Vote - Video 9/24/09
Here is video of New York Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer telling MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last night that he will offer an amendment today in the Senate Finance Committee to put a "Public Option" in the Baucus Health Care Bill. Schumer said he would offer such an amendment, along with Sen. Jay Rockefeller.
Schumer said the battle for a Public Option begins today, and he will demand a roll call vote on the amendment. Schumer said it may fail in committee, but said they have a much better chance of winning in the full Senate.
