Guess what? The President’s ardent desire for bipartisanship may have a very long half-life:
President Barack Obama may rely only on Democrats to push health-care legislation through the U.S. Congress if Republican resistance doesn’t eventually give way, two of the president’s top advisers said.
So even after repeatedly seeing how little interest Republicans have in actually voting for key Democratic-agenda bills — even after they have been watered down and repeatedly Republican-amended — the expected horizon for giving up on hopes of bipartisan support is eventually?
Maybe they’re not in such a hurry to pass the healthcare reform bill, after all?
