Rep. Ellison reacts to public option in trouble on Capitol Hillby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
Democrats in the U.S. Senate appear to be moving toward a health reform bill that would not include a government-run "public option" insurance program.
If the Senate doesn't include the public option in its bill, it would still need to be reconciled with the House-passed version, which includes a public option.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, DFL-Minn., who's an outspoken supporter of the public option.
