House healthcare bill criticized as panel votes for public plan

Washington Post, July 31, 2009

The House Energy and Commerce Committee resumed work on major healthcare legislation, voting to establish a government-run health insurance plan. By a vote of 35 to 24, Democrats defeated a Republican effort to eliminate a section of the bill that would create the public health insurance option. President Obama supports a public plan, saying it would foster competition and keep private insurers honest.
