Dems Kill Public Option in Senate Committee

The five Senate finance committee Dems who embraced all 10 Repubs in voting down Rockefeller’s (WV) public option amendment 15-8 were

Baucus (MT), Conrad (ND), Carper (DE), Lincoln (AR), and Nelson (FL).

Baucus and Conrad also voted against Schumer’s (NY) much more modest amendment that went down 13-10.
