Obama to bring a “Revised Health Care Proposal” to the Meeting on Monday with GOP

President Obama will present a “revised health care reform proposal” on Monday in his meeting with Democrats and GOP on Monday at Blair House in Capitol Hill.

The revised  scheme includes part of Democrats House and Senate bill in the new bill. The Republicans  as call to dump the current bill for small less ambitious that would garner the public support.

The plan was a result of an agreement between Democrat house and senate leaders. The health care bill will be a budget bill which will use reconciliation procedure  that allows only 51 votes in the Senate.

“I believe that’s the path we are going to take,” a senior congressional Democratic aide said.

However, Democrats senior leaders including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority  Harry Reid has yet to sign on to the scheme.

“We are still waiting for the president to present to Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi his plan,” a Democratic leadership aide told Reuters.

Republicans for the most part are not holding their collective breath on bipartisanship; but will attend.

“If the president is sincere about moving forward in a bipartisan fashion, he must take the reconciliation process — which will be used to jam through legislation that a majority of Americans do not want — off the table,” said Representative Eric Cantor,  (R-VA) the Republican Whip.
