Baucus on the public option
It almost sounds like he's taking credit for it:
It is time to make our system work better for patients and providers, for small-business owners and for our economy. It is time for health-care reform. For more than a year, we've been working to meet the goals of reducing the growth of health-care costs, improving quality and efficiency and expanding coverage. There are a tremendous number of complicated issues that go into reform and the public option is certainly one of them. I included a public option in the health reform blueprint I released nearly one year ago, and continue to support any provision, including a public option, that will ensure choice and competition and get the 60 votes needed to pass the Senate. Success should be our threshold and I am going to fight hard for the 60 votes we need to meet that goal this year.
