The people have spoken and it's looking like they have been heard!
According to the Associated Press in Washington this morning — "President Barack Obama's administration signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run health insurance as part of his ambitious health care proposal."
"Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Obama's liberal supporters but could deliver a much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers."
The Washington Times
Time will certainly tell whether or not this battle is won, however we are encouraged by this news. We are so proud of the private citizens who have taken the time and energy to do their homework, contact their states representatives, go to town hall meetings and let their voice be heard. What a wonderful example of democracy when "we the people" begin to engage in what is our responsibility, in order to protect our freedoms and the future of our country.
While I'm not yet ready to let my guard down at this point, I am more optimistic which is a welcome change. Dear readers, continue to be diligent in your efforts to speak to your Congress and Senate about this matter and the many matters that will arise after this. Continue to be steadfast in prayer for our country and our leaders.
