Close on the heels of his soaring rhetoric and thigh tingling personal appearance in Copenhagen, President Barack 'Amateur Hour' Obama is going to treat the Left with a full-court press on the Public Option! Best believe that this is now deader than Kelsey's Nuts, Cupcakes.
Bughouse Nancy Pelosi, Happy Boy Harry Reid, Teabagger Townhalls, 100% Racist White folks from everywhere America and Sarah Palin shooting up heroin Live on the Letterman Show, could not do more to help the foolish public option on health care more than the swell folks who gave the Chicago Olympics to Rio -Barack Obama's Orgnal Amateur Hour White House! Now, the same folks who gave their all in Copenhagen - sort of - will scuttle the Public Option on Health.
WASHINGTON - -- Despite months of seeming ambivalence about creating a government health insurance plan, the Obama White House has launched an intensifying behind-the-scenes campaign to get divided Senate Democrats to take up some version of the idea in the weeks just ahead.
President Barack Obama has long advocated a so-called public option, while at the same time repeatedly expressing openness to other ways to offer consumers a potentially more affordable alternative to health plans sold by private insurers.
But now, senior administration officials are holding private meetings almost daily at the Capitol with senior Democratic staff to discuss ways to include a version of the public plan in the health care bill that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to bring to the Senate floor later this month, according to senior Democratic congressional aides.
