House Public Option Still Viable, Says House Committee on Aging & Health Subcom. Ex-Director Bob Weiner
Date:10/13/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Robert Weiner, former Chief of Staff of the House Committee on Aging and Health Subcommittee, said the public option remains viable despite the Senate Finance Committee vote today.

Pelosi is now blending the three House versions - all with a public option - and will bring the bill to the Rules Committee over the next few days and the floor soon afterward.

For those who doubt Pelosi's ability to pass the bill, she has passed every bill she has brought forward, usually with 60-plus margins, since the Demo
