Liberal Caucus Leader Set to Introduce New Public Option Bill

Not 24 Hours and Democrats All Set to Introduce Amendment For a "Robust Public Option"

The Hill

Democrat Rep. Lynn Woolsey telling MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan that as soon as Obama signs the reconciliation package into law, she will introduce an amendment for a "robust public option." Democrats see passage of ObamaCare as an open door. It is their intention, and that of President Obama, to eventually bring about a "single-payer," totally run Government Health Care system.

A leader of the House liberals' caucus said Monday she'll introduce new legislation to revive the public option.

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), the co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said she plans to unveil legislation to add the government-run option to the national healthcare exchange established by legislation President Barack Obama is to sign tomorrow.

"We will introduce a robust public option bill on the very day the president signs the reconciliation bill into law," Woolsey said Monday during an interview on MSNBC.

The public insurance option had been a part of the healthcare legislation first approved by the House in November, but Senate Democratic leaders were forced to abandon the provision after it became clear that they wouldn't be able to get all 60 Democrats (at the time) to sign onto legislation containing that provision.

Woolsey and her co-chairman of the caucus, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), had pushed for the public option throughout the different stages of the health debate, but still ended up voting in favor of the legislation in the end, despite some threats to do otherwise earlier in the process.

Some Senate Democrats, like Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), have spoken of revisiting the public option down the line, too.


Wild Thing's comment........

The Public Option creates taxpayer-funded, government-provided health insurance, in direct competition with private insurance companies. In the long run, it will put them out of business, as they cannot compete with the bottomless pit of tax revenues brought to bear against them.

In the end, only the government will provide "health insurance", and the socialist takeover of a HUGE chunk of the country will be complete.

It is a bullet through the head of the insurance industry.

What the hell is next, will they be adding the hammer and sickle added to our flag?

Public option, Amnesty, Cap/Tax, gut Military, close Gitmo, civilian trials, hang Allies out to dry, CIA interrogation trials, war on private sector, soak the wealthy, etc etc.

So much Socialism, so little time.

Woolsey is the dork who let Cindy Sheehan in for the sole purpose of disrupting a Presidential Address to Congress.

But of course Joe Wilson saying “you lie” and Samuel Alito saying “that’s not true” are grounds for public rebuke.

"Democrats see the passage of obamacare as an open door". What an understatement. The far Left Dems and the so called moderates of both parties are pushing govt. down our throats. We HAVE to vote in a conservative majority Congress this November. I feel that the obama bunch, including the unions and community activist groups, are quietly making plans for massive voter fraud in 2012 to give obama a second term. At the rate the Dems are moving we will soon be to the left of Russia.

Obama has stated that there will be a single-payer system before the end of his first term. He will not back down from this position. I want to see all of these disgracefull turkeyneck bums forced into the same dreadful system that is being imposed upon the rest of us. That includes all of the representaturds and all of the senatards. I do not care-all of them have failed us. Also herded into this black hole must be Barry,Michelle and Malawi and Sharia or whatever names they foisted upon their kids.All of his toadys and his inner sanctum-Biden,Emmanual,the head of SEIU,Van Jones,the rest of the looters- must be strapped into this disaster. Most senators and reps are old so they will be subject to the "complete lives system" (AKA death panels) so when they become ill, they can be told to take a pain pill and go home just like Soetoro told the woman should be done with her age 95 mother. G*d Bless America-G*d damn the traitors!!!
