Best news I’ve heard in weeks. Reid is allegedly confident that he has 60 votes for a public option in the health care bill:


I am told that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is leaning toward including the creation of a new government-run insurance program – the so-called public option – in the health care reform bill he will bring to the full Senate in the coming weeks.

Democratic sources tell me that Reid – after a series of meetings with Democratic moderates – has concluded he can pass a bill with a public option.

Stay tuned.
