When asked by Rachel Maddow if he would vote for it even if it doesn't contain a public option.

He didnt' say that what the House just passed was a giveaway to the Insurance Industry. :shrug:

Might he had been including this as a "good thing"? " Repeals the McCarran-Ferguson Act insurance antitrust exemption with respect to health insurance and medical malpractice insurance."
http://edlabor.house.gov/documents/111/pdf/publications...

So it appears, that no matter his preference for a different kind of bill, he doesn't agree that passing no bill is preferable.


So will the "real" "Pure as driven snow" Progressives (cause I just found out on GD that I am not one of them by about 10 DU posters, cause I dare not be in lockstep with them about the need of starting a new party), throw Saunders under the bus, where I've been thrown?
