Health Battle Escalates

Bill Clark/Roll Call
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus, surrounded by reporters Tuesday after the Democrats’ policy lunch, has an aggressive timetable for health legislation.

“I think it’s going to be very challenging. A public plan is nothing more than a stalking horse for a single-payer system,” Gregg said. “It leads inevitably to a nationalized system. If that is a prerequisite for the president to have a plan — that there must be a public plan option — it’s going to be very hard for Republicans to participate in that.”
