Olympia Snow told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC an hour or so ago that there will not be a public option in the Senate Bill.

I am adding details as I can (I was was encouraged to write this diary after I commented this in a diary) so please excuse the short diary for now.

Olympia Snowe reverses herself on co ops and admits public option not on the table in Senate Finance Committee
By John Amato Friday Aug 21, 2009 11:03am

Olympia Snowe admitted to Andrea Mitchell that the Senate Finance Committee is not even considering a public option in their bill and never had it on the table. She said that the skyrocketing costs of health care are paramount to their bill which is why they are ogling co opts.

Mitchell: So bottom lines, Nancy Pelosi says that they will not produce anything that does not include a public option. Do you see any way that the gang of six will come out of the Finance Committee with a public option?

Snowe: No, I don’t. We have not had the public option on the table. It’s been co ops and addressing affordability and availability and plans through the exchange and those are the challenges we’re wrestling with to insure that there are basic plans to offer Americans.


Snowe is supposedly one of the ‘ REASONABLE’ Republicans.

Let’s stop this SHAM of bi-partisanship, and hone in on the SENATE DEMOCRATS.


Be a man, and stand there with the GOP IN FILIBUSTERING, if you’re so big and bad.

But, this bullshyt of there being no public option to vote on in the SENATE…
