    President Obama said that the public option would only be 5% of the total health bill.

    Why don't we make that the law? No more than 5%.

    Yes. That's right.
    If it is in there, the GOP won't support it.
    And so, if The Obama wants bi-partisan support, He must remove it.
    His call.

    The question remains:
    If he has the votes He says He has, why hasn't The Obama had this bill put up for a vote?

    What you fail to grasp is that there cannot be compromise on the issue of the public option.

    You keep forgetting.

    "Bipartisanship" means supporting the Democrats' agenda regardless of your objections to it. Otherwise, you're an "obstructionist."

    As "Bi-partisan" means " having support from both sides", the fact that the Dems will not offer a bill that the GOP can support means the Dems are not trying to be bi-partisan.

    You want to frame this as the GOP being unwilling to be bi-partisan when in fact it is The Obama trying to force the GOP to support a bill they cannot support.

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said he is confident Congress will pass "a good health care bill," as months of rancor over reforming the nation's health care system seemed to be easing Sunday, with the White House playing down an immediate role for a government insurance option.

    At the same time, Obama was critical of Republican opponents who he said were trying to block an overhaul of the nation's heath care system for political gain.

    "I believe that we will have enough votes to pass not just any health care bill, but a good health care bill that helps the American people, reduces costs, actually over the long-term controls our deficit. I'm confident that we've got that," Obama said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes. "There are those in the Republican party who think the best thing to do is just to kill reform. That that will be good politics."

    Hmmm someone in the White House needs to inform Mr. Obama it's just not some folks in the Republican party who want this thing to be killed off. The last time I looked allot of "AMERICANS" from all sides of the Political Spectrum want this thing to be killed off. but hey typical Demogod attacks blame it on the Republicans and if that doesn't work then go after the So-Called Right Wing Folks never mind the actually truth out there. Once again Mr. Obama is lieing threw his Teeth and he knows it.
    could you translate please?

    right wingers are republicans, aren't they? and have we heard that republicans would like healthcare to be obama's waterloo?

    seems pretty crazy that you are against lowering health care costs and controlling the deficit.
