That's it for the health care bill until fall, folks.

uly 28 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. House Democratic leaders, struggling to reach an accord with party dissidents on health care, said they're likely to miss President
's August deadline for legislation overhauling the medical system. "It doesn't look like it to me," House Ways and Means Committee Chairman
said in an interview. "I really hoped that we could have gotten a bill out of here by now," he said, adding that he has a "heavy political heart."


Steny Hoyer: "It's unfortunate we didn't meet our timeline, but I don't think it's a failure."


Noooo...of course not. It's a sort of sideways victory, right?


Dems still rail against the GOP as 'obstructionist', but the best part is that the Republicans can't block the bill if the Dems really want it. This Dem vs Dem!


Sweet irony.


Of course they have not officially admitted the bill is dead yet, but who wants to make a bet it goes nowhere until the Congress returns from summer break?
