Pelosi, Other Calif. Reps Voice Support for Public Health Plan
On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that health care cooperatives are "not a substitute" for a public plan and that a House bill must include a government-run option. Reps. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) and Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) also both expressed their support for a public plan earlier this week.
