Dems: Can't Deliver Healthcare Win Alone

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama may no longer expect Congress to have a healthcare reform bill before its August recess, but his "road tour" push is still picking up steam.

The president will be making stops in Virginia and North Carolina this week. Lawmakers will also return to the ongoing debate on Capitol Hill, where Democrats have admitted this is a job they cannot do alone.

On Sunday, Sens. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., and Jim DeMint, R-S.C.spoke with ABC's "This Week" about the need to have a bipartisan bill.

"There are not the votes for Democrats to do this just on our side of the aisle," Sen. Conrad said.

"It's just not possible to have a Democrat-only bill?" host George Stephanopoulos asked Conrad.

"No, it is not possible, and perhaps not desirable either," Conrad replied. 

"I like the president, but he is out of control and leading a stampede of more spending and debt and taxes and government takeovers," Sen. DeMint said.

Some Democrats have also expressed serious concern about the cost of the bill.
