Stocks crash in last half hour on HealthCare news.
DJ reports House Democratic leaders are pushing closer to embracing the more robust public health insurance option favored by liberal Democrats, as they sought Wednesday to gauge whether such a plan can win support from a majority of House lawmakers. "I think we're going to be able to," said Rep. Anthony Weiner, (D., N.Y.), a member of the House whip team, when asked if the robust public plan will get majority support. "I think it will ultimately become the law of the land." House Democratic leaders "whipped" support for the broad public option, meaning they polled their members regarding their support, during House votes Wednesday.
