WASHINGTON (AP) - After insisting for a year that failure was not an option, President Barack Obama is now acknowledging his health care overhaul may die in Congress.
His tone at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser Thursday night verged at times on defeatist. Even while saying he still wanted to get the job done, Obama bowed to new political realities. Democrats no longer command a filibuster-proof Senate majority, and voters and lawmakers are far more concerned with jobs and the economy than with enacting sweeping and expensive changes to the health system.
"I think it's very important for us to have a methodical, open process over the next several weeks, and then let's go ahead and make a decision," Obama said Thursday night.

I’ll pack their parachutes!
Aholes every one of them.
“his health care overhaul may die in Congress.”.....
Abortion funding killed HCR.
Never believe anything this lying POS says.
I disagree. Backroom dealing, socialist a$$holes is what killed it.
They did find a trick...they are just going to extend Medicare to everyone and call it a victory.
His takeover and control of the American people is failing faster than Bieden's hair-plugs.
Didn’t the president say that his emphasis is, and has always been on ‘Jobs’? Whenever you see a pronouncement like that — especially one that is demonstrably false — you are seeing a big shift in the agenda.
Notice the language!!!
He says we should continue the process then let congress vote- so it will be CONGRESS who gets all the blame- not him
It's 'shovel ready' and he knows it.
Methinks he bows alot.
That was last night. This morning he’s probably insisting that it must be passed.
But, but, but that’s not right! Speaker Pelosi said:
You go through the gate. If the gates closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, well pole-vault in. If that doesnt work, well parachute in. But were going to get health care reform passed for the American people.
It will be the only good thing that happened with his term in office next to his last day in it.
OBAMA THROWS HIS DEMOCRATS UNDER THE BUS!!!
“And it may be that ... if Congress decides we’re not going to do it, even after all the facts are laid out, all the options are clear, then the American people can make a judgment as to whether this Congress has done the right thing for them or not,” the president said. “And that’s how democracy works. There will be elections coming up and they’ll be able to make a determination and register their concerns one way or the other during election time.”
