House Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Says Bill “Unacceptable” Without Government Plan

Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, co-chairman of the House Progessive Caucus, reiterated through a representative Tuesday evening that any health care bill that does not include a government plan will be “unacceptable.”

I emailed the congressman’s office earlier to get a reaction to news that the Senate Finance Committee rejected two proposals for a “public option.”

“The Congressman feels that any legislation without a public option is unacceptable and he will not support such a plan,” spokeswoman Natalie Luna Rose wrote in an email.
