What Howard Dean predicts on healthcare

Here is Howard Dean’s prognosis (just heard by me).

1. Obama hedges on the public option, encouraging the Senate to pass a bill without a public option. This requires 60 votes.

2. The House bill will have a public option, which will be retained after reconciliation. The reconciled bill requires only 51 votes in the Senate and will pass.

Dean reiterated that the Blue Dogs, in his opinion, have helped greatly in improving the House bill’s small-business-related provisions.
