Day By Day by Chris Muir

Now, President Obama is declaring that “I Own” that health care bill and agrees that he will accept full responsibility for Obamacare.
You know, I intend to be President for a while and once this– bill passes, I own it.  And if people look and say, “You know what? This hasn’t reduced my costs.  My premiums are still going up 25 percent, insurance companies are still jerkin’ me around,” I’m the one who’s going to be held responsible.

And, that is why the idea is being floated around Washington to apply triggers so that a public option does not become in full effect until way into an Obama second term. He can take credit but when it crashes and burns he will be on the way out to the golf course.

If Obamacare passes the United States Senate as it is propsoed by Obama with a public option it may never be fully implemented because the voters will vote out Democrat majorities in the House in November 2010.

Then, the GOP will go after Obama himself in 2012.

Obama will OWN not only socialized health care with Obamacare but also the collapse of the Democrat Party majorities in the Congress.

Does anyone think he will roll the dice?

Obamacare: Public Option is Dead Without Budget Reconciliation Gambit?

obamainwhitecoat Obamacare Poll Watch: 47 Per Cent of Americans Oppose a Public/Government Option

It appears so as moderate GOP Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins say no to Obama’s public option.
More proof that the “public option” is all but dead comes from the two senators Democrats hoped might side with them in supporting the measure in a health care reform bill.

Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) said President Obama “should take it off the table” since it would “give real momentum to building consensus,” reports The Hill.

Meanwhile, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she would not even support a “trigger” option in any legislation, meaning a provision to delay a public option and allow health insurance companies to lower costs on their own, according to the Washington Post.

Said Collins: “The problem with the trigger is it just delays the public option.”

Flap breathes a little easier but the pressure should continue to mount by the LEFT to RAM the public option through the U.S. Senate.

So, it ain’t over until it is over.
