The latest report from the Senate is that Harry Reid will ensure the public option is added to the current healthcare bill.
In the ABC headline, it reads "Back from the Dead" -- remember, as I've been stating, IT WAS NEVER DEAD, IT'S THE GOAL!
We know the House fulling supports the government takeover and several members of Congress has admitted to their support of the public option. Combine the cheap government plan with the hostile taxes and penalties imposed on the insurance companies and the government takeover will be inevitable.
Reid: "As soon as we get the bill back from CBO, and people have a chance to look at it -- which we'll have ample time to do that -- I believe we clearly will have the support of my caucus to move to this bill and start legislating."
You will hear much about the "public option" and "triggers", possibly "co-ops" -- it is ALL, I repeat, ALL designed to allow a government plan to be implemented and ultimately the default for all of us when the current carriers go bankrupt or our employers discontinue health coverages.
Stay strong, the battle is still looming. Call and write your reps and Senators.
