Nancy Pelosi Affirms Commitment to Government-Run Insurance Plan

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday affirmed her commitment to including a government-run insurance plan in health care reform, just hours after she spoke approvingly of an alternative to the so-called public option. 

"Any real change requires the inclusion of a strong public option. ... A bill without a strong public option will not pass the House," the California Democrat said in a statement. "Eliminating the public option would be a major victory for the insurance companies who have rationed care, increased premiums and denied coverage."

The written statement came after she seemed to slightly back off the public option for the first time in the white-hot debate over health care reform."
