Acquire today's Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus is pushing -- with the health care bill.
Whether Republicans are on board or not Peter Barnes is in Capitol Hill with the very latest.
-- -- Hey good morning Alexis well right here in the office behind me and that is where a bipartisan health care bill.
Could live or die in the next couple of days that's the offices of senator baucus and he just walked by here about thirty minutes ago as we were setting up our cameras and he said.
That the talks among the so called gang of six.
-- to other Democrats and three Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee.
Will be held Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and that will be it he said.
Before he proceeds with dropping his own Health Care Reform bill.
Wind or without the Republicans and -- -- without that means the Democrats have a pretty heavy -- and we'll have to come up with all the votes and the senate.
To get something through another meeting today starts at 11 o'clock senator baucus will not include the so called.
Public option in his bill that's the government run health insurance company that is very important to a lot of Democrats in the house and the house bills do have.
The public option and Republicans over here in the senate say.
If the deficit matters which I'm glad to hear it does and the public options -- acceptable -- the house bill is dead.
We should just do it in the garbage can because this 239 billion dollars added to the deficit over ten year period.
It has a public option so it looks like all the actions now in the senate.
And a new Washington Post poll out this morning on Health Care Reform shows that voters are pretty evenly split on the issue right now 48% oppose 46%.
Support it but with out the public option support rises to 50%.
Elect suspecting all -- -- thank you very.
