Understanding that I see a clear path for a "Public Option" as a stand alone bill using Reconciliation. The current Senate Bill or what ever comes out of conference will never have a Public Option. We struggled and kept the pressure up to the very end. We fought the good fight.
But it's best at this point to grasp all that is good in this bill and get it passed.
I wouldn't want to stand in front of a Mother with a sick child who can't get insurance and say " sorry, not this time It wasn't perfect."
