    If the Republicans were in charge and this were their bill, they would have spun it so that the Democrats would be scared to vote against it.

    Come on Obama, put some pressure on the Democrats, tell the Republicans that if they don't vote for health reform they will have to explain why to their constituents, pass good legislation, and you'll win people back on your side again.  Then you can all go out and tell America how those Republicans refused to do anything to solve the health care crisis.
