House healthcare reform bill to include public option

Washington Post, October 29, 2009

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil a healthcare reform bill that includes a government insurance option and an expansion of Medicaid. Senior Democratic House aides said the bill would likely include a version of the "public option" preferred by moderates and may raise Medicaid eligibility levels to 150% of the federal poverty level for all adults, a steeper increase than in earlier drafts.
