Rockefeller Amendment for Public Insurance Option Shot Down in Finance Committee

AlterNet's Adele Stan reports that an amendment offered by Senator Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, to add a public insurance option to the health-care reform plan developed in the Senate finance committee was defeated by an 8-15 vote.

Chuck Schumer, D-NY, will offer his proposal for a public option later today.
