Kennedy and Baucus disagreeing about the public option

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on June 1, 2009

A few days ago the New York Times reported on the rift growing between Ted Kennedy (D – Massachusetts, chairman of the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and Max Baucus (D – Montana, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee). Kennedy seems to be more committed to the public option, and Baucus is more interested in forming a bipartisan bill that may not include a public option.

Chuck Schumer (D – New York): “It’s pretty certain that Senator Kennedy could not support the Baucus plan, and Senator Baucus could not support the Kennedy plan.”
Stay tuned to the RWV blog for more details about the bills proposed by each of these committees!
