Jeffrey Young has quotes from Sens. Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu, playing down the idea of a deal having been struck on the public option.
“There’s no specific compromise. There were discussions,” Landrieu said at a press conference, Young reports at the Hill.
According to Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), sending the bill to the CBO was about all the 10 senators agree to do. “We got to a point where we couldn’t go any further until we got scores,” she said. “There are a lot of things on the table still and until, you know, we hear back from CBO it’s going to be hard to see whatever I can support, for sure.”
Indeed, Landrieu said, “Until the package that was sent [is] scored, we don’t know what’s in it.”
