Hoyer: Public option may have to go

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says that the public option may have to go in order to get a bill passed.

A day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that health reform won’t get through the House without a public option, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Friday that the public option may have to go in order to get a bill passed.


“I’m for a public option but I’m also for passing a bill,” Hoyer told reporters on a conference call. “We believe the public option is a necessary, useful and very important aspect of this, but we’ll have to see because there are many other important aspects of the bill as well.”


In San Francisco on Thursday, Pelosi said: "There's no way I can pass a bill in the House of Representatives without a public option.”


The seemingly contradictory comments highlight the pressure on some Democratic members, particularly those from conservative districts. Members have faced rowdy crowds in town hall meetings across the country during the August recess.


Hoyer said that the meetings have “had a positive effect.”

The Maryland Democrat came under fire earlier this month after co-authoring an op-ed criticizing an “ugly campaign” by conservatives to disrupt the events.??

“Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American,” wrote Hoyer and Pelosi.

On Friday, he voiced a slightly different opinion.


“There are some people who are angry, yes, but basically these are productive meetings that do what a democracy is designed to do.”
