DO DEMOCRATS REALLY THINK...:

President Obama's health-care reforms shaky with Democrats, GOP (Kenneth R. Bazinet, 6/22/09, NY DAILY NEWS)

"I don't know that [Obama] has the votes right now. I think there's a lot of concern in the Democratic caucus," Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" show.

Like New York, California is concerned Obama will cover costs in part by reducing Medicaid and Medicare payments that help support hospitals and the public health system.

"If you change the Medicaid rate, for example, it has an impact on California between $1billion and $5 billion a year," Feinstein said. "Now, how could I support that?"


...they're going to come up with a massive plan to spend money on health care that saves taxpayers money?
