When the Public Option is Relative, and other Senate Finance Follies

Thanks to the House Progressives, and to an organized and loud external progressive community, the message has finally seemingly gotten through: the bill has to have a public option. Witness today's statement from Harry Reid, that there will be a public option in the bill that goes to the Senate floor. The devil is always in the details when they start talking about the definition of a public option being "relative," but at least we've gotten to the point where they recognize it has to be there. Progress.

A lot has happened in the Senate Finance Committee with health care reform. This is a pretty good summary at Daily Kos.
