Response to strawberries (Reply #8)

11. Only something like 10 votes for it in the Senate.

Public option had higher support, but Lieberman killed his own public option proposal late in the process. Kinda proves he would block a stronger public option, and he was the 60th vote.

The 59th vote was Ben Nelson, who had to be bribed to not join the filibuster. He would have never voted for single payer, and likely would have opposed a public option.
