After hearing from all sides in the debate about health care reform, U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei has reached one conclusion: He will vote for a bill only if it includes an option for public health insurance.

"If there is no public option, I don't see that bill passing the House," Maffei said Tuesday at a meeting of The Post-Standard's editorial board. "I would not support a bill that doesn't have a strong public option, just as I wouldn't support bills that don't have private options."

It was the first time that Maffei, D-DeWitt, has said that a lack of a public option would be a deal-breaker when it comes to his vote.
