Two Sens Plan to Add Public Option to HC Bill

Ad Feedback

The showdown on health care continues in Washington Friday.

Two leading Senate Democrats are looking to get government-run options into the Senate Finance Committee's bill.

Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., omitted the public option from his plan because he doesn't think it can pass in the Senate.

But Sens Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., each have plan to add it to the bill.

Rockefeller wants to set payment levels for hospitals and doctors.

Schumer wants negotiated payment rates.

They expect the committee to take a roll call vote on the issue Friday.
