Quote of the Day

"All of us are going to have to look at that ... What we've got to do is make (insurance companies) compete — and a public option is probably the only way."

-- Gov. Joe Manchin to Time magazine on how states might operate the insurance exchanges allowed under the new federal health care law.

The article said that Oregon is "already studying the feasibility of including a public option as part of its state exchange." Time also quotes Manchin suggesting that West Virginia may join with neighboring states to operate a regional exchange.
