    We Shall Overcome

    WASHINGTON – 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 U.S. 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 would likely enrage his liberal supporters but could deliver Obama a much-needed win on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.

    Well the compromise to appease Republicans is absurd: Basically the compromise is to give insurance companies 40,000,000 new customers subsidized by taxpayers and to require insurance companies to offer more benefits (and of course charge more). My guess is that the Senate Democrats at some point will write off the Republicans and pass a bill without them, using the reconciliation method, which requires only 51 votes.

    What does a coop do to lower rising costs? This is more political BS by two parties who don't give a rats arse about the people they are supposed to represent. More diarea politics in this country.

    If they want to f*ck themselves for 11/10 then they'll do just that. The people don't want this bill and the "reconciliation method" has never been used for a policy bill like this, it's intended for budgets which this isn't although it affects the budget.
