Democrats reach deal on health bill

Quote:
Senate Democratic healthcare negotiators said they agreed on Tuesday to replace a government-run insurance option with a scaled-back non-profit plan and would seek cost estimates on the deal.

"We have a broad agreement," Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid told reporters, refusing to provide details of the healthcare proposals to be sent to the Congressional Budget Office.

A team of 10 Senate Democrats -- five liberals and five moderates -- had worked for days to find a substitute to the government-run "public" insurance option included in the Senate healthcare bill after moderates voiced concerns about it.

The government-run plan has been one of the biggest hurdles for the healthcare overhaul, which is President Barack Obama's top domestic priority.

Democratic Senate sources said the substitute would create a non-profit plan operated by private insurers but administered by the Office of Personnel Management, which supervises health coverage for federal workers.

One of the liberal negotiators, Democratic Senator Russ Feingold, said he had concerns about the direction of the talks on the public insurance option, which was designed to create more choice for consumers and competition for insurers.

"non-profit plan operated by private insurers but administered by the Office of Personnel Management"

Bravo, I think it was the best way to go

Yes thieves are everywhere, and it would appear they are definitely in the health insurance industry!

I wonder why Big Health isn't fighting this health care reform plan? Could be they plan to make a killing on it? (no pun intended.)
