Weiner: No Vote On Health Care Bill Without A Public Option

Earlier today, Rep. Anthony Weiner said he thinks about 100 Democratic members of the House would oppose a health care reform bill that didn’t contain a public option. Now, he’s taken the implication of that statement one step further. Not only would such a bill fail, but it wouldn’t even come to the floor for a vote.

And, for what it’s worth, despite recent evidence that the Senate will oppose a public option and the White House can live with that outcome, Speaker Pelosi still stands behind it.
