Killing the public option

The Senate Finance Committee, not totally surprisingly, voted down a public option for health insurance yesterday.

Carl Cameron of Fox News, the “We report, you decide” people, said it was the first time time there had been a vote on the public option and that it had gotten beaten.

He was one-fifth of one-half right: It did get beaten. But one other Senate committee (Health, Education, Labor and Pensions) has approved a plan with a public option, as have all three House committees that have voted on a plan.

Just sayin’.
