GMA Reports Sen. Harry Reid will Put Forward Senate Health Bill WITH a "Public Option" - Video 10/23/09
Here is video of Good Morning America today reporting that Democrat Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid will bring forward a Senate Health Care Bill that DOES contain a Government-run "Public Option" Insurance program:
"I am told that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is leaning toward including the creation of a new government-run insurance program – the so-called public option – in the health care reform bill he will bring to the full Senate in the coming weeks. Democratic sources tell me that Reid – after a series of meetings with Democratic moderates – has concluded he can pass a bill with a public option."
Reporter Jonathan Karl said such a bill would have "no Republican support" - not even Olympia Snowe. That could only mean Reid is prepared to used the "Reconciliation Process" (Nuclear Option) to ram the bill through with only 50 Democrat votes needed.
