Senate Public Option Reconciliation Scoreboard

By
Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 4:23 pm

The prospects for a public option — a government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers — appeared dim after Senate Democrats decided they could not muster the necessary 60 votes and passed a health care reform bill without one. But recently, the public option has shown signs of life, as an increasing number of Democratic senators have pledged to support passage of a bill with a public option through budget reconciliation rules, which would require only 50 votes. This scoreboard, updated daily, can serve as your one-stop shop for senators’ stances on a public plan — in their own words. It contains senators’ opinions on both the public option itself and the strategy of passing it through reconciliation. Stop back daily for the latest news.

Click on the numbers in the scoreboard for the lists of senators in each category, including key quotes on their positions and background information that helps explain their perspectives.

Thanks to Julissa Treviño for her tireless work in compiling this scoreboard.

If no further action is taken on HCR until after Scott Brown is seated, as Obama and Reid have telegraphed, you should replace Paul Kirk in the supporters with Scott Brown in the Likely Opponents (in the absence of evidence to the contrary).

how can you count baucus as a supporter of the public option? sure he mouths superficial support for it (for PR/appearance sake) but he fought to keep it off the senate finance bill. actions speak louder than words.

this holds true for obama as well: it is disingenuous to claim to be a “supporter” of something when you are unwilling to fight for it.

I thought it was about what the people want — and 80+% of the population wants the public option. Who's keeping these douchebags in office?! We're never going to get anything done when a super-majority is needed…and I thought our government was indecisive enough!!!

TEHRAN, Iran – Twin bombings killed at least 20 people outside a mosque in southeastern Iran on Thursday — including members of the powerful Revolutionary Guard — in attacks that came less than a month after Iran hanged the leader of a militant insurgent group in the region.

Iran's official IRNA news agency quoted the deputy governor of the Sistan-Baluchistan province, Jalal Sayyah, as saying the explosions tore through a crowd of Shiite worshippers near the main mosque in the provincial capital of Zahedan.

The deputy interior minister in charge of security, Ali Abdollahi, told the semiofficial Fars news agency that members of the Revolutionary Guard — the country's most powerful military force — were killed in the blasts, which appeared to be the work of suicide bombers.

The first blast struck at 9:20 local time (1650GMT), with the second following minutes later, outside the mosque where a group of Shiite worshippers were attending ceremonies marking birthday of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson, IRNA said.

The head of the province's medical emergency department, Fariborz Rashedi, told IRNA at least 20 people were killed and around 100 wounded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings, but Sistan-Baluchistan is home to the Jundallah insurgency, a Sunni group that has claimed responsibility for attacks that have killed scores in recent years, including five senior Revolutionary Guard commanders last year. In 2009, the group detonated a bomb in a Shiite mosque in Zahedan, killing and wounding more than 120.

Jundallah says it is fighting for the rights of the Sunni Baluch minority, and accuses Iran's Shiite-dominated government of persecution. Tehran claims Jundallah is behind an insurgency in its southeast that has destabilized the border region with Pakistan.

In June, Iran hanged the group's leader, Abdulhamid Rigi, in Zahedan after he was found guilty of carrying out attacks against civilians, armed robbery, and engaging in a disinformation campaign against Iran.

His younger brother, Abdulhamid, was executed in May in Iran after being captured in Pakistan in 2008 and extradited to Iran.

The group gained attention six years ago after it launched a campaign of sporadic kidnappings and bombings that killed dozens. The group claims minority Sunni tribes in southeastern Iran suffer discrimination at the hands of Iran's Shiite leadership.

Iran has accused the U.S. and Britain of supporting Jundallah in an effort to weaken the Iranian government, a charge they deny. Iran also claims the group is linked to al-Qaida, but experts say no evidence of such a link has been found.

Christian shoes for

styled handbags. God forgive me, I interviewed Christian Louboutin while

wearing a pair of trainers. What remains most identifiably hiphoppish

about it is the beat-in-the-body that serves as ground for Classic Christian Louboutin growing-and contradictory-

repertoire of lyrical lambaste it leverages.Some of the dressiest

elegant Christian Louboutin pumps also feature

sparkling rhinestone bands layered along the raised sole and Christian Louboutin heels.
