A conversation with Rahm Emanuel on Charlie Rose


The most newsworthy item in this clip is Emanuel saying that the healthcare bill cannot pass the Senate with a public option. Along those lines reports are now coming out that the Obama Administration is negotiating with Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) to use a watered-down ‘public-option trigger’ which she has said she will support. The White House has denied these reports.

Likely we will see either a trigger mechanism or an insurance co-op.
