Key Democratic Senator declares public option dead
Sen. Kent Conrad told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that there are not enough votes in the Senate to pass a public option for health insurance. “The fact of the matter is there are not the votes in the United States Senate for a public option. There never have been,” said Conrad.
Conrad is one of six Senators attempting to negotiate a bipartisan health care bill.
