Public Option back on the table?
by Larry Geller
On Wednesday, Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) introduced H.R. 5808. The text of the bill can be read here on Thomas. The bill is titled "To amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to establish a public health insurance option." Woolsey has procured 128 co-sponsors for the bill.
