Obama Intends to Reveal His Healthcare Bill

When all you need is something to sign, you can draw it up yourself.

This is akin to something I call in my profession "making it easier to get the 'yes'". If you want the CEO to sign off on an expense, don't send him an email and tell him "we need something". Fill out the forms and the justification and leave a place on it somewhere for his signature.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) President Barack Obama is expected to publish his healthcare plan as early as Sunday or Monday, combining features of the two Democratic bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, congressional aides and healthcare advocates said on Friday.

How serious are they? In my moron opinion completely serious. They've ignored the majority opinion of the public on it for months, they've ignored their own party conflicts over the morass of the two bills. Why would they simply pick up the ball and go home?

Power grabs don't come cheap. Break a few eggs and all that. Whether they can pull it off remains to be seen, but I don't doubt for a moment that they will try.

Other news of the day, When Harry met Barry. Campaigning with Reid, Obama offers up $1.5 BN of uncommitted TARP funds to convince Nevada voters that he and Harry will save their mortgages.

I have done the arithmetic. I figured out that if I a) lost my job, and b) got a few lawyers to take $3000 bucks to renegotiate the terms of my mortgage, and c) still didn't get a job, I'd d) default on this sucker a little bit later than I was going to anyway.

Chicken hardest hit.
