House Democrats to Keep Public Option in Health Care Bill, Have September Vote

Barry and the Dems are trying to convince everyone they are pulling the public option out of socialized healthcare; it looks like these Dems didn't get that memo.

Responding to President Barack Obama and top Obama officials, House Democrats say they will keep the public option, the government-run health care system that will fund abortions and abortion coverage, in the health care bills. They also don't expect a vote on the House floor until September.

A House leadership official told Politico that the Obama administration's concession on the public option is "just for the Senate."

“There is no way it passes the House the first time around without a public option," the aide added. "The liberals (around 100+) won't allow it."

The House and Senate could wind up passing differing bills and the public option could be removed in a conference committee to come up with a final bill that fuses the two pieces of legislation together. The aide suggested House Democrats would likely vote for the bill if the Obama administration persuades them to do so.

"It if comes back from conference committee without public option and there is the right pitch that it is this or nothing, then it may pass the House," the top official said.
