A short time ago, a Public Option amendment proposed to the Senate Finance Committee was rejected. This was an amendment written by Senator Jay Rockefeller and was the more Liberal of the Public Option amendments. The committee vote as 15 – 8 to kill with all Republicans and 5 Democrats voting to kill it.
Next was a more moderate amendment by Senator Chuck Schumer. It went down 13-10.
No other public option amendments are pending as far as I can tell.
