Senate Deal Drops Public Option

Replaced with private sector alternative.




washingtonpost.com



"Under the deal, the government plan preferred by liberals 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, which oversees health policies for federal workers. If private firms were unable to deliver acceptable national policies, a government plan would be created".

Looks like what Olympia Snowe proposed all along.
