However it looks like he tossed one more line to the Republicans... One without a public option... They bit the cheese and were still against it. So Howard Dean pretty much stated it had to have a public option afterwards.
This is more health insurance reform not than universal healthcare. They are just coming into the market to offer competition to lower prices and increase quality since largely its been unchecked. So prices are going up and quality is dropping. Of course there will have to be something done to address the ones who wont be able to afford coverage after this bill starts coming into effect...
Should it pass.
Bu, bu, bu. . . Republicans.
Not to be disrespectful at all, ST, but being an Obaaaaaama apologist doesn't change the fact that his approval rating (overall) is on the downslope and he is being shown for the epic failure he is (and we who didn't vote for him) knew he would be.
