Reid says deal resolves the impasse on the public option

New York Times, December 9, 2009

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that he and a group of 10 Democratic senators had reached "a broad agreement" to resolve a dispute over a proposed government-run health insurance plan. Reid refused to provide details, but other senators said the tentative agreement would sideline but not kill the "public option" championed by President Obama and liberal Democrats in Congress, the New York Times reports. Reid's comments came a few hours after the Senate rejected a proposal to ban coverage of abortion by health plans that would insure millions of Americans under the Democrats' bill.
