Conrad Says He'll Vote Against Public Option

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), one of six on the Senate Finannce Committee negotiating a bipartisan health care bill, "told an audience of 100 that he would not vote for a government-run health care program," the Jamestown Sun reports.

Instead, Conrad presented his "cooperative health care proposal" which "would offer a non-profit insurance option to compete with private health care. It would not be government run, he said."

TPM correctly notes that there is "still a question of whether he'd support a filibuster of a health care bill with a public option."
