Senator Says Public Plan Is In, SGR Gets Attention

When the healthcare reform bill comes up for a vote in the Senate, it will contain a public plan, the chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee said today.

“Yes, we’ll have a good strong, public option,” Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) told reporters Friday.

Harkin has been one of the main proponents of the public plan in the Senate, but Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman of the Finance Committee, has said he doesn’t think the public option has enough votes to pass in the Senate.
