  •  GOP will scream government take-over. (2+ / 0-)

    I wonder if the public option will be a fall back negotiation.  If the Dems can prove they could get something really strong through the GOP might begrudgingly sign on if they could weaken it in the process.  

    I think this is a trap for the GOP. I think Obama wants them to make a huge stink on this issue to publicize it.  Then it could be turned around on them saying "what do you want to do about out of control costs and skyrocketing premium prices?  We ovvered this regulation and a robust public option and you don't like both those ideas - so what are your ideas?  You gotta come with something more than tort reform?  Do you not care that price gouging is happening?

    Politics is like playing Asteroids - You go far enough to the left and you end up on the right. Or vice-versa.
