Obama FINALLY admits that a few "strays" managed to sneak their way into at least one of the health care bills that recently passed through the House and the Senate, that support the fact that if these bills made it to his desk, those of us that already have private health insurance plans WOULD be in jeopardy of losing them!
"we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your -- if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you're not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge."
Mr. Obama, this is what happens when you let majority leaders run amok and you don't read the bills you propose!
What do YOU think?

I'm pretty sure that health care bill is still being looked at by the senate. Meaning it hasn't passed yet.

The reason why it hasn't made it to Obama's desk is because he can only sign ONE healthcare bill, so the House and the Senate have been bantering back and forth for the past month trying to compromise, err, figure out the best way to buy the votes of those in opposition or on the fence!
AND now with Scott Brown (YAY!), is the 41st Republican the Democrats can't bring the Senate bill back up for a vote with their "changes!" And liberals acted like Brown's win was no big deal!!! LOL :o)
