Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday will convene a special meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus and senior White Officials to discuss the troubled rollout of ObamaCare.
Reid on Wednesday told reporters he would not answer questions about the hundreds of thousands of insurance policy cancellations or other issues until he has further discussions with the White House.
The Senate leader said President Obama called him Tuesday evening to discuss healthcare and other issues.
Several Democrats have signed onto a proposal sponsored by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) that would force insurance companies to let people keep their health plans if they like them.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said he would have a better idea of what proposals Democrats will push to improve the new law after the Thursday meeting.
Republicans could scarcely contain their glee over the growing Democratic anxiety.
"Obviously panic has set in on the other side," Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said.
Reid just wants to somehow placate the people and keep them from complaining until after the next election cycle. They are screaming for that kind of action rather than actually looking into and repealing this unfair and unworkable law, and replacing it with something that makes sense. Look for pretend solutions magnified and glorified by the main stream media.
Look for catch phrases aimed at the low information voter. IMHO, this power hungry bunch has no intention of repealing the Affordable Care Act.
bh0 will call for Reid not to go ‘wobbly,’ but to stand fast and teach those ignorant masses who actually runs this country and is giving them what they wanted when they re-elected him.
As bad as things are getting I don't think it is going to be killed. The GOP-e represents mid to large size businesses. I believe these business interests are now happy to be relieved of providing healthcare coverage to employees. Talking with a property management executive a couple weeks ago I was told this company plans on giving employees a stipend/bonus egual to their health insurance cost minus the tax penalty when the employer mandate kicks in.
Nice Jimmy Buffett reference. :-)
hip waders for all the BS
Let them die on this!
STAY OUT of it GOP.
This is a Bi-Partisan meeting-—right??
How do you “un-cancel” cancelled health insurance? I mean don’t these things need to be negotiated and approved?
That would be no surprise—you are right.
“So we inching any closer to a 2/3rds majority to overturn this thing despite Obamas lame duck presence?”
Biden and Reid in the same room.
They should meet in a stall so the Horse dung doesn’t contaminate the rest of the place.
I wonder if this "meeting" will result in some Democrat senators tromping up to the White House, as the Republicans did when they decided Nixon was killing their "brand."
Excellent advice...The implosion of the Rats is just beginning, it’ll be fun watching them finish the suicide.
I am sure it’s how to apologize to Ted Cruz.
That would be racist.
Great point...I believe with great difficulty and probably not at all, the Rats are finally starting to realize it.
WHY, pray, tell, do they not call this (Obamacare) what it is: FRAUD?
This is why you don’t push legislation unilaterally with no input from the other political party... Dems got greedy and gobbled up the whole pie, now they’ve got diarrhea and are hoping the Republicans will help clean up their shit... Republicans need to not be a part of any legislative action to help it, only to eliminate it.
