Democratic Senator: Public Health Insurance Option Dead
[link to www.cnn.com]
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A key Senate negotiator said Sunday that President Obama should drop his push for a government-funded public health insurance option because the Senate will never pass it.

President Obama at a town hall meeting earlier this week pushing his health care reform plan.

Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota said it was futile to continue to "chase that rabbit" due to the lack of 60 Senate votes needed to overcome a filibuster.

"The fact of the matter is there are not the votes in the United States Senate for a public option. There never have been," Conrad said on "Fox News Sunday."

Needs a pin...
Our voice is heard, but the fight is not over...
This is only the beginning.

Validation that We the People...are required for participation in their pipe dreams.
And the cooperation will not come at the expense of this Republic -in my book...

I totally agree. We have won this battle but we have not won the war, yet.

WTH??? Without this provision, the whole reform business is reduced to a big nothing.

I don't believe them but note the more petitions for congress to live under what they vote for, the less enthusiasm they have for the whole thing.

I don't trust or believe them and think they will try to sneak it in tacked onto some other piece of totally unrelated legislation.

They would never cave this easily.
