"He said we can't do it this year, but next year he'd be willing to consider inserting a public option," Lynch said.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment from TPMDC.

Lynch said he's voting against the bill because there's no public option, there's an excise tax on Cadillac plans and there's no repeal of anti-trust exemptions for insurers. He voted for the November bill.
