OK, here we go another way to get the strongest possible "Public Option" or "Medicare By-in".
Pass the Health Care Reform Bill with out a Public Option or Buy-in. Pass it in the House with out either option, also. President sign and we have Health Insurance Reform.
When the Congress returns next year start start the legislative process for Public or Medicare Option, maybe both, including language for reconciliation. Punch it through the House, Punch it through the Senate and on to the President. Now We Have Health Care Reform.
