All-Democratic health care option still open

February 19, 2010

— The White House signaled Thursday that an aggressive, all-Democratic strategy for overhauling the nation’s health care system remains a serious option, even as President Barack Obama invites Republicans to next week’s televised summit to seek possible compromises.

The administration’s stance could set the stage for a political showdown, with Democrats struggling to enact the president’s top domestic priority and Republicans trying to block what many conservatives see as government overreach.

A senior administration official said Democratic congressional leaders have nearly finished efforts to reconcile two health bills, which the House and Senate passed separately last year with practically no Republican help. Obama will use their legislation to expand coverage to some 30 million and require most Americans to carry insurance as the basis for a proposal that the White House will post online by Monday, three days before the Feb. 25 summit, said the official.

Anyway, I thought the Congressional loons on the left said they had learned their lesson from the Massachusetts senate election, and weren't going to pull any procedural shenanigans to get their cluster**** health insurance reform bill around the Senate blockade. Guess they lied.....again.

I'm not going to fight obamacare/socialized medicine/nationalized health care anymore. I'm just going to push my answer. Do everything we can to promote non-profit groups like Health Care Access and the counties dental program. The answer is not the government stepping in and takijng over, it's the non-profits stepping up, growing and increasing to fill the need of the uninsured, under-insured and those who 'fall between the cracks'. Let's go above and beyond to create an atmosphere where health care related non-profits can flourish. This is the answer my friends.

Republicans need to continue their plan of keeping their fingerprints completely off of ObamaCare.
