Mary Landrieu Blasts Obama Over Health Care

"I think the president should have been more clear about a way forward on health care last night," Sen. Mary Landrieu told reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday. "I'm hoping in the next week or two he will be, because that's what it's going to take if it's at all possible to get this done." [from CNN]

I agree with her in this much: Until the White House steps up and says what it wants from the House bill and what it wants from the Senate Bill AND WHY and clearly elucidates its reasoning and priorities, they are doing us all a disservice.

I have heard they are negotiating behind the scenes, in the vernacular. Man up and say what it is you want to do.

Bill Clinton was right when he said better to be strong and wrong than weak and right. Last night was a start trowards strong, but until they say what they are willing to go to the mat for, they are not being strong enough!

A lot of us out here in the fields (I'm with Doctors for America) are waiting for some forceful language and commitment from this group. If they learned nothing this year it should be this: The anti-HillaryCare approach of not getting involved AT ALL has been a failure. Get in the trenches and fight!
