    So Barry can't even get his DemocRAT House and Senate that don't Require ONE REPUBLICan Vote to get in Line with his Plan, but this is the Mean Old REPUBLICan's Fault that the American People won't get a "Public Option"...

    Newspeak, anybody?... AP, you have once again done your Master Proud.

    White House appears ready to drop 'public option'

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bowing to Republican pressure, President Barack Obama's administration signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run insurance as part of a new health care system.

    Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Obama's liberal supporters but could deliver a much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.

    ---

    Once again, Barry doesn't Need ONE GOP Vote...

    Stop Lying, AP... It's just Sad at this point.

    :)

    peace...

    I am not one bit surprised. If you can't blame Bush, blame his party.

    It's amazing isn't it?

    This administration has yet to leave campaign mode, which is a problem. They are unable to hear what the masses are saying, yet it's getting close to 2010 cycle. They are now tone deaf.

    Congress' proposals, however, seemed likely to strike end-of-life counseling sessions. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has called the session "death panels," a label that has drawn rebuke from her fellow Republicans as well as Democrats.

    ^Classic... The AP Ignores the Inability of Barry and his Party to get this done, as they do NOT Need ONE REPUBLICan Vote, but they continue into this Story to paint a House Divided on thee GOP Side...

    Shameless Bastards, the AP is.

    :)

    peace...

    Chalk another one up for Republican misinformation and fear mongering.
    As directed by the Insurance industry, the repubs resorted to their typical tricks to swamp the public with lies and threats of impending doom.
    Meanwhile, the US lingers at #37 in healthcare while repubs spread rumors about "death panels"

    Cant even get it passed when he controls everything... doesnt say much for his salesmanship or ideas.

    However, I think Republicans should be trumpeting this. It's good that they've kept government from growing.
