White House, Congress, put health care bill on hold

We see the same message in today’s Times as in the AP story in the previous entry:

His Health Bill Stalled, Obama Juggles an Altered Agenda

… With Mr. Obama’s health care overhaul stalled on Capitol Hill, Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, said in an interview that Democrats would try to act first on job creation, reducing the deficit and imposing tighter regulation on banks before returning to the health measure, the president’s top priority from last year.

Translation: They’ve given up on it. They’ve been beat. They just don’t want to come out and say it.

Three cheers for Scott Brown.
