Single payer quietly croaks

Oct 30–

Well, it’s official.

No single payer option single payer option in this health care reform bill. Maybe we’ll get the public option, but states won’t have the option to set up a single payer system in their states even if they want to.

Surprised? Me neither.

Not that I’m all that sold on the public option, I think single payer would have been better, but, hey, I’ll take what I can get. But I’m wondering if the public option will survive this whole process.
