U.S. Senator Russ Feingold says he is not interested in passing health care reform in name only.

The Wisconsin Democrat says a plan that doesn't include a public option is not a reform plan.

Feingold says the government-sponsored public insurance option has to be present in any plan for him to support it.

Feingold took his stand after key members of the Obama administration seemed to suggest private insurance cooperatives would be acceptable.

The White House did say Monday that the public insurance option is still on the table.
