    Public Option Not Vital to Health Reform, Teamsters’ Hoffa Says- Bloomberg

    Teamsters President James Hoffa said dropping the so-called public option wouldn’t be a “deal killer” for health-care legislation, signaling a split among leaders of unions that are a core constituency of President Barack Obama.

    Hoffa said he isn’t willing to compromise on another priority for organized labor, the so-called card-check bill that would make it easier for workers to form unions.
