Obama still outspoken about the merits of the public plan

Ezra Klein points out that President Barack Obama is still in outspoken support of a public option. With the House tri-committee bill out, he fielded press questions about the public part of the plan. An excerpt from one of his responses:

“…The notion that all these insurance companies who say they’re giving consumers the best possible deal, if they can’t compete against a public plan as one option, with consumers making the decision what’s the best deal, that defies logic, which is why I think you’ve seen in the polling data overwhelming support for a public plan.”

Thanks to Our Bodies, Our Blog for pointing out this super helpful set of graphics. It outlines the paths through which health care legislation will grow and maybe eventually be passed.
