Democrats may drop public option from health bill

WASHINGTON — The idea — beloved by President Barack Obama and liberal Democrats — that any overhaul of the nation’s health care system should include a government-run insurance option to compete with private insurers is losing important political momentum.

Democratic leaders of the Senate and the House of Representatives wouldn’t guarantee Tuesday that the “public option” would be in the final version of the legislation. Neither chamber’s leaders would rule out backing alternative co-ops — member-run health care consortiums comparable to credit unions — instead, an alternative that’s popular with moderates but not with liberals.
