Public Option Passes CBO's Test

The Senate Finance Committee may be set to kill a public option as part of health care reform, but a new report from the CBO proves incorrect the basis of their opposition. The Associated Press reports that a new report by the CBO says that “the public option proposed by Democrats would not drive private insurers out of business and most people would still choose to get their medical coverage through employers.” The House has included a public option as part of its plan.
