Today's Health Care News Round Up

Lots of news today related to the great Obamacare debate.

In a press conference today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shot down a "public option trigger," which moderate Democrats deem necessary for their support.

“I don't even want to talk about a trigger,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference. She said the “attitude” of her fellow Democrats is that “a trigger is an excuse for not doing anything.”

Pelosi can get re-elected from uber-liberal San Francisco with the public option, but she could lose control of the House pushing this agenda. Apparently, she doesn't care, taking the philosophy that she's in charge now and we better all like it.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick names a Kennedy sycophant to fill the official Kennedy seat. This is because it's more important to cram through Obamacare than follow their own state laws, the one put in place by the dead Kennedy.

Bickering continues on Max Baucus's committee as Republicans try to prevent Democrats from cutting Medicare benefits.
