Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama and his plan on passing Obama-care?
Answer: Now he wants Congress to SLOW DOWN on health-care!
Like I said before, if Scott Brown won the Massachusetts special Senate election, a political tidal wave will wash over Washington DC. Turns out, I was right. Although, I got to be honest… I never thought it would make its way to the Oval Office. ABC News reports:
President Obama warned Democrats in Congress today not to “jam” a health care reform bill through now that they’ve lost their commanding majority in the Senate, and said they must wait for newly elected Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown to be sworn into office.
The president said there are “core elements” to the health care legislation that both Republican and Democrats agree on and they must come together to work for comprehensive reform.
“We know that we need insurance reform, that the health insurance companies are taking advantage of people. We know that we have to have some form of cost containment because if we don’t, then our budgets are going to blow up,” he said. “And we know that small businesses are going to need help so that they can provide health insurance for their families. Those are the core, some of the core elements of this bill.”
It’s good that President Obama wants to slow down the health-care reform process in order to get Scott Brown sworn in, but what will happen afterward is the big question. Has President Obama hit a wall of political reality and using this moment to calm down some of the anger amongst the American People? Or is he just using this time to explore other possible ways to jam this monstrosity of a health-care bill down our throats?
I guess only time will tell.
