What Dr. McCanne said:

So here is the stand-alone bill for the public insurance option that created so much controversy during the reform process.

Must have said it a thousand times at FDL. Seems like they just wanted to be distracted. They felt so clever proposing a complicated reform instead of the simple one. You know it was so wonky.
