Pelosi and the White House Expresses Approval for ‘Public Option’ Alternative

It seems Miss Dont you waterboard me Pelosi and the rest of the white house might be coming off the perch a little and approving of a potential reform package that does not include a government-run insurance plan.

GASP!!

Until now Miss P has described the so-called public option, backed aggressively by the liberal House Democrats, as a key ingredient to passage of any House health reform package.

But on Thursday she acknowledged talks to substitute a “trigger” mechanism that would hold the public option in abeyance for several years so Congress could evaluate the performance of the insurance industry and its ability or willingness to expand coverage or lower premiums.

Ey-ye-ye

Although that is the story today, who knows what the story will be tomorrow.

Stay Tuned, folks….
