Obama punted on the economy and reversed the fortunes of the Democrats in 365 days.
He’s misjudged the character of the country in his whole approach. There’s the saying, “It’s the economy, stupid.” He didn’t get it. He was determined somehow or other to adopt a whole new agenda. He didn’t address the main issue.
A good little article on the topic. Having witnessed a shoulder dystocia and going through a cord prolapse, not sure I would ever want to go unassisted, but if the parents are educated and the type of people who react calmly under pressure, it might be a good choice for them.
WASHINGTON – Democrats' best last-ditch approach to saving President Barack Obama's sweeping health care overhaul — prodding House members to pass a Senate version vastly unpopular there — isn't working.
So attention is shifting to crafting much more modest health legislation that could have bipartisan appeal, and even that may prove more complicated than many lawmakers suggest.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she lacks the votes to move the Senate's bill through the House and to Obama's desk, a plan that's backed by the White House. Under that scenario, the new law would be followed by a separate measure making changes sought by House members, such as easing the Senate's tax on higher-cost health plans.
