Ryan Grim On The Next Step For The Public Option (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Huffington Post congressional correspondent Ryan Grim appeared on the Democracy Now! news program this morning to discuss the recent passage of health care reform legislation and the path forward for further legislative packages, including a public insurance option.

Grim noted that the same reconciliation route successfully taken by Congress to pass health care reform into law can also be used to implement follow-up legislation, namely the public option, which isn't included in the most recently enacted health care reform law.

"It's really a matter of will at this point, not a matter of votes," Grim said.
