The public option took a shot to the kidney yesterday. The punch was hard and it was not fair, but it is just a part of the game. The public option may be getting a standing eight-count in boxing parlance, but it should not be counted out. In the next several weeks, the pressure will continue to build for a public option. Eventually, the House of Representatives will pass a bill with a public option. The Senate may not follow suit, but eventually will have to compromise on some form of a public option. What form the public option will take is anyone’s guess. However, it will be in a form that will allow all sides to claim victory and get on to campaigning for 2010.
