Don’t trust President Obama nor the Democrats to keep their promises. Obama has broken most of his campaign promises already, so what makes anyone think he would make good on an agreement about health care? Let the protests continue!
White House appears ready to drop ‘public option’
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bowing to Republican pressure and an uneasy public, President Barack Obama’s administration signaled 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.
