Senate Finance Committee votes 15-8 against Government public option for health care. And Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., who has been trying to push a compromise Bill is calling it a victory.
"My job is to put together a bill that gets to 60 votes in the full Senate", according to AP. "No one shows me how to get to 60 votes with a public option," he added.
After all the delays it now looks like there will be votes in both the House and the Senate in October, wioth a vote on a compromise between the two much deeper into the Fall.
