So where is health care now?

Perhaps it was a trial balloon as the WH seems to be distancing itself a bit from the HHS comments.

The Dems on this one started the wrong way by letting the Republicans dominate the debate. The starting point should have been single payer and then negotiate down to a public option, rather than the public option as the starter. With a public option gone, "reform" will only make health insurance more expensive, which will make everyone hate it.

Historians refer to LBJ as "the master of the Senate." When there was something he wanted passed, he got it passed. And now we have Harry Reid. Yippee.
