Reconciliation forces a better Public Option

Interesting post by TPM: In order for health care reform to be sufficiently related to budgetary matters to qualify to be passed via reconciliation, it will have to be more 'liberal', i.e., it will need to contain a much stronger Public Option than has been considered so far, because a strong Public Option is what saves the government money. But the more 'liberal' the bill is, the more likely you'll have conservative Dems defect (for reasons that are incoherent). The good news is that the bar is much lower: you'll only need 50 votes instead of 60.
