Obama does not have his own budget plan that does not entail giving Republicans lots of what they want. That is Obama's nature as a politician.

Every time the Republicans rejected one of their ideas because Obama was for it the idea stayed it the legislation. If you were not going to get any Republicans votes for ACA even without the public option then why not put the public option back in? Because Obama never wanted it in the first place.
