I don't know. Are people just going to take it? I suspect electoral fallout, but no effective push back by the people against Congress to change the law after the fact. I'm not sure people give a fuck.
The real nasty thing is that the whole country, most of the House, and a great many Senate dems are all about the public option. And yet, it's still somehow up in the air, now that it's in the hands of His Royal Majesty Harry Reid.
