Pelosi: Adding government-run ‘public option’ to Obamacare ‘on the table’

(Worthy News) – Marking the 11th anniversary of Obamacare’s passage, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said a push to add a government-run public option to Obamacare is “on the table” for Democrats in Congress.

A federally-run public option proposal failed to garner enough support when Obamacare was originally drafted in 2009. It would have created a government-run insurance agency to compete with private insurers. Republicans and moderate Democrats objected to the idea at the time, arguing that it would eventually put private insurers out of business. Obamacare passed in March 2010 without Republican votes.

“I want a public option. I don’t know that we get that in this bill,” Pelosi said on Tuesday, referring to the upcoming massive infrastructure package that House Democrats are working on, which is expected to contain some climate change and health care measures.
