Obama: No Health Care Vote Until Possibly October

This information comes from Barack Obama who has a history of saying one thing and doing another, so give this the weight you think it deserves:

President Barack Obama said Wednesday there will be no vote on his proposed reforms of the US healthcare system before autumn, a setback that is costing him more political capital with each passing day.

"This bill, even in the best-case scenario, will not be signed -- we won't even vote on it probably until the end of September or the middle of October," he said in a session here to muster public support for the reforms.

"We're just trying to get all these different bills out of committee," he said.

Lawmakers are going through bills in both houses of Congress with fine tooth combs amid fierce opposition from Republicans and divisions within the Democratic majority and between the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Obama has pressed lawmakers to vote on the initial bills before departing on their summer recess August 7, but acknowledged that is unlikely to happen.

He was not clear whether he expected a final vote or only a first vote on the bill by the end of September or mid-October.

In the past, he has set a goal of signing the law around mid-October, or at least before the end of 2009.

But..but..the Won gave them a deadline! He promised over and over on television that the bill would be passed and on his desk for signature by the date he demanded!

What was there to have differences about? The Won knew exactly what was going to be in the bill and what wasn't. He kept telling everyone what the legislation was going to be. The AARP, the NAACP, in front of Hospitals, in front of ACORN er, government workers. He took questions and said what the benefits were going to be and that it wouldn't cost anything! He arm-twisted the CBO to change their figures! This was HIS bill! The way he said he wanted it!

Rahm, Nancy and Harry said they had the votes to pass the bill; even without Republicans!

What happened? It must be those evil Republicans and FOX News!

C'mon, guys. Give Barry a break.

He doesn't know how legislation is supposed to be made. He spent most of his brief time in the Senate absent while he was out campaigning for President. He just doesn't have much experience.
No executive experience either. Never even ran a company.

What could possibly go wrong?

So ... No vote until OCTOBE... (Below threshold)

Seems to me is if Obama is trying to sound like he is still in control of this debacle.

Either that or he's decided to read it, which may indeed take until October.
