Skip to comments.Dems give Obama ultimatum: Fix health plan cancellations by Friday

House Democrats delivered a fix-it-or-else ultimatum Wednesday to President Obama, giving his administration until Friday to find an affordable solution for the millions of Americans losing their health plans under ObamaCare -- or risk some Democrats backing a Republican solution.
The ultimatum from President Obama's own party is another sign of the unrest within the Democratic caucus about the cancellation notices. The end-of-the-week deadline is significant, because House Republicans are planning to call a vote Friday on a bill that would extend current policies for another year.
It's unclear whether Democrats would go so far as to support that bill if the administration does not offer a Plan B. But one senior Democratic source told Fox News that, at a closed meeting Wednesday, Democrats made clear to the administration that they need a proposed fix before Friday's vote.

The Rats are starting to get tired of falling on their swords for the Royal Idiot!
Wonder what sort of laughably desperate Hail Mary play Obama’s gonna try and run?
When the Upton bill passes and goes to the Senate, Harry Reid will make it unrecognizable.
The only fix that should be on the table is a complete repeal or defunding, which is a repeal.
Repeal is the only way to go.
this is about the time GOP surrenders right?
I don’t get it, didn’t they already have it?
Republicans should not HAVE a “solution” except REPEAL. FFS it isn’t tough people.
“Wonder what sort of laughably desperate Hail Mary play Obamas gonna try and run?”
He’ll blame the insurance companies.
He’s going to hit the campaign trail, of course. That’s his answer to everything. Or he’ll visit the Philippines. Or he’s start a little war somewhere.
Time for a “major policy announcement!”
How can Obama fix it? It’s the law!!! He’s not the king! He can’t just change a law because he wants to! Those idiots passed it, and if they want to change it, they’ve got to do something about it.
So what’s your choice, morons? Is it worth screwing the American people to keep from doing what you hate the most - siding with Republicans? Are you that hateful of everyone to the Right of you that you would rather keep wrecking the health insurance of American families just to keep yourselves “clean” and free of conservative blight?
Nothing is more dangerous that a trapped RAT.
Keep all eyes on Reid, McCain and Pelosi as they are going to swing a switch-a-roo.
Didn’t the regime delay the employer mandate 1 year via executive order?
Just like those German officers at the Nuremberg trials in post war Germany, these rat politicos are going to tell their constituents back home that in 2009 they were just following orders.
Amen, amen, and amen!
Those Dems better watch it. Presenting an ultimatum to Obama is not very respectful, and President Jarrett will not be happy. She will invoke something called “The Chicago Way”.
To wit: “Now that we’re almost done bulldozing the neighborhood, let’s give people another year to get their houses up to the new zoning codes.”
He blamed them in Round 1. 2 for 2?
