No healthcare reform vote before autumn: Obama
Looks like the deal cut with the Blue Dogs might not be all that helpful--the health care reform proposals are still hemorrhaging popularity in and out of Congress.President Barack Obama said Wednesday there will be no vote on his proposed reforms of the US healthcare system before autumn, a setback that is costing him more political capital with each passing day.
"This bill, even in the best-case scenario, will not be signed -- we won't even vote on it probably until the end of September or the middle of October," he said in a session here to muster public support for the reforms.
Jim DeMint might end up calling it exactly....this bill is turning into Dear Leader's Waterloo.
