Senate may drop public option

Washington Post, December 9, 2009

Democratic Senate negotiators struck a tentative agreement to drop the government-run insurance plan from their overhaul of the healthcare system, hoping to remove a last major roadblock preventing the bill from moving to a final vote in the chamber, the Washington Post reports. Under the deal, the government plan would be replaced with a program that would create several national insurance policies administered by private companies but negotiated by the Office of Personnel Management. If private firms were unable to deliver acceptable national policies, a government plan would be created.
