View Full Version : Health Care Bill 'Still a Jump Ball,' White House Official Says

The prospects for Democratic victory on health care reform, the president's signature domestic initiative, have improved, but "it's still a jump ball," a top White House official intimately involved in the ongoing health care negotiations with House and Senate Democrats told Fox News late Friday.

That assessment confirms that the White House and Democratic leaders so far lack the votes to pass health care in the House. And it undercuts somewhat the declaration Friday from Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that President Obama finally feels the wind at his back on the issue.


Every ten minutes the momentum in Congress seems to swing on this thing. It's completely out of control. This morning it looked dead in the water, then it looked like it was going to pass almost immediately and now it's a "jump ball." What the hell is going on? :confused:

Of course, the American people hate this bill with gut-wrenching passion, but we all know the Democrats have no regard for the American people.

We will wake up one of these mornings and find out that they found some sleazy underhanded way to vote it in during the night.

I have no doubt that Pelosi will do everything in her power to try to do that.
