As noted below, it’s the Left that now wants to abandon the health-care bill. Here’s why: Senator Harry Reid has unceremoniously dumped plans to create a buy-in for people 55 and older into the already financially-troubled Medicare program. Closed-doors Harry agreed to drop the Medicare buy-in under the pressure from the White House, which seems to share Reid’s perception that passing something, anything, is better than starting over for a genuine discussion of the country’s health-care needs.
