Pelosi Vows: There Will Be A Public Option

From a relieved Reuters:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) talks during a speech at City Summit on Healthcare Reform and Economic Inspiration in San Francisco, California September 2, 2009.

House health reform will include public option: Pelosi

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The healthcare reform bill making its way through the U.S. House of Representatives will include a public insurance option, but negotiations are continuing on the details of the public plan, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday.

"At the end of the day we will have a public option" in the House bill, Pelosi told a news conference.

Pelosi said negotiations were not just about a government-run option but also were looking forward to the shape of a final bill that could be approved by both the House and the Senate, which she said also was now leaning toward a public option.

She sounds pretty sure of herself.

And, of course, at the ‘end of the day’ there will be a public option – whether it is spelled out specifically in this current bill or not.

Why else even do this?

    Why bother to have a vote?

  3. proreason says:

    There won’t be an explicit Public Option.

    They aren’t prepared to have an armed confrontation yet.

    It will be hidden with smoke and mirrors, like 98% of what they do.

    Nancy, maybe you can add some plastic surgery in that “public option”. You need some more bioch.

    I noticed she’s wearing different teeth lately.

  6. wirenut says:

    Why Canary I think your right! Nice catch. I also think her lips are fashioned after a urinal from a long time ago. Only astroturf and old ex-plumbers assistants would know.

  7. Reality Bytes says:

    Someone needs to look at Pelosi’s perscriptions like they did Rush. The woman looks & acts like she’s on some Serious, Serious Meds!

  8. wirenut says:

    I seriously think she’s a stinker with a bowel problem.

  9. philmarlowe says:

    ‘At the end of the day’ is a phrase that needs to be retired from public discourse. Certainly, the Speaker of the House ought to be able to come up with some alternatives to the usual tired phrases. Democrats have a monopoly on almost everything, but ‘the end of the day’ keeps getting pushed further and further into the distance.

  10. canary says:

    She’s wearing temporary teeth, until she remembers her last blow job. She’s already checked offices and hotel rooms, but she’s afraid she’ll ask the wrong liberal dickhead or jackass if they’ve seen them. Have you seen them? ohhh Tell me if you’ve seen them. ta da la da.

    Don’t bet on it you ole’ bag!

    To the Democrats in Congress who don’t quite get it: I want to offer a personal pledge. I and a lot of other people have every intention of removing you from Congress in the next election if you stand in the way of health care legislation that the majority of the American people want without any public option attached. That is not a hollow or idle threat. We will come to your district and we will work against you, first in the primary and, if we have to, in the general election. We do not want the “Public Option (single payer)”…..period! Rest assured, we are all watching how you vote now and in the future.
