I just spoke to my own senior Hill sources, who, let's just say, are seriously in a position to know. And they tell me that the House bill "will have the public option," period. Votes are still being counted, so don't believe Politico when they report breathlessly that the public option is dead. It looks like a public option foe is putting out disinformation.
In addition, Pelosi's spokesman Nadeam Elshami says:
Speculation that a final decision has been made about the public option are not accurate. We continue to work with all the members of the caucus to build consensus.
