Obama's Healthcare Plan May Lack Votes

Ad Feedback

President Obama's health care reform proposal faces more stiff opposition in Congress this week.

Republicans blasted the centerpiece of the plan -- the so-called 'public option' -- after a Congressional Budget Office report put the cost at $1.6 trillion dollars over ten years.
     
Even key Democrats said the President faces an uphill battle.

"Well to be candid with you, I don't know that he has the votes right now," said Democrat Dianne Feinstein. "I think there's a lot of concern in the Democratic caucus."
    
"The CBO estimates were a death blow to a government- run health care plan," said Republican Lindsey Graham. 

The fight comes as a new poll reveals that the President's honeymoon with the American public might be coming to an end.
    
The New York Times reports that a recent poll shows Mr. Obama still retains a 63 percent job approval rating.
    
However, most Americans believe his economic policies have been ineffective or harmful, citing massive federal spending and high deficits.
