Snowe: Public option ‘trigger’ off the table for Senate Finance Committee
Sen. Olympia Snowe told CBS’ Bob Schieffer that there will not be a bill from the Senate Finance Committee that includes a public option “trigger.”
“It’s not on the table. It won’t be. We’ll be using the co-op as an option at this point as the means for injecting competition in the process,” said Snowe.
