    ....... Obama is about to outsmart himself again and kill the bill himself with his neverending requests for "concessions" from the very people who supported him.  

    It's time to call the president's bluff and let them have a few sleepless nights in the White House.  Enough of this blaming everyone but themselves for their incompetence and double dealing.  

    It's time to tell the president that if his plan needs money, he can go look for it to the very people who've enjoyed the tax cut spree.  

    Enough is enough.  

    Btw, I can almost guarantee Obama isn't finished with his quest for concessions. This is a convoluted crappy bill and an elaborate shell game to make it look semi-palatable.

      My rep. is Mark Schauer (MI-07).  The only Democrats in his district are pretty much union Democrats.

      So, Obama is going to force him to vote for this pile of garbage?

      And he expects unions to crank up the GOTV efforts in the Fall for a guy who votes for anti-union bill after anti-union bill?

      The only legitimate recourse is to endorse sympathetic Republicans - they exist in Michigan - and sit on our hands for federal elections.

        It's been stupid from day one when you had a president who thought he was going to "deal make" his way in to healthcare reform and then pass it to the capable hands of Max Baucus.  That's the same Max Baucus who can't find his ass with both hands and a mirror.  

        Things got even more stupid when this White House decided to go after the very people who supported him and would vote him, the left.  

        Somebody in this White House needs to tell Obama he's running out of lefties he can screw.  And the left needs to call Obama's bluff and say "NO".
