Anonymous Senate Aides Suggest Reid May Nix Public Option From Senate Bill

Buried in this New York Times piece on Harry Reid’s role on health care is the news that according to anonymous Senate aides, Reid may have decided that the Senate bill will have no public option to appease Olympia Snowe and a few “centrist” Dem Senators.

The focus is now on Reid, because he’s overseeing the creation of a Senate bill by combining different Senate committee versions, one of which has a public option, the other of which doesn’t. Guess which approach is winning out:

To appeal to Ms. Snowe, as well as to centrist Democrats like Senators Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana, the combined bill would not include a proposal for a government-run insurance plan, or public option, despite the clamoring of liberals who support it, senior Democratic Senate aides said.""
