If the Public Option is Dead, Then Why are Liberals Content??

MARA GAY at the ATLANTIC explains
Why? Because there's a new alternative in town many public option advocates seem to like. The Senate compromise could include an expansion of Medicare to Americans 55 or older, an exchange that would allow the government to negotiate prices with private insurance companies, and a "trigger" that would create a government-run plan if the exchange doesn't provide enough Americans with affordable health care. If the compromise between liberal and moderate Democrats holds, the Senate will be one, major step closer to achieving health care reform.
