Signs of Dropping Government-Run HealthCare

WASHINGTON - Boston to Republican pressure and an uneasy public, President Barack Obama's administration signaled Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run insurance as part of a new health care system.

Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession would likely enrage his liberal supporters but could deliver Obama a much-needed win on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.

I'm not sure what the pros and cons are to this latest development. We may be going in the right direction but giving 4 billion dollars would seem to buy some significant influence. And, if Kathleen Sebelius is fer it, Catholics probably ought to be agin' it.

We'll have to do some homework.

Too bad they didn't keep going with it until they took every shred of trust the American Public has in the Democrats and the beezabuls down with it.

May be time for Nana to stick another pin in the voodoo dollies.
