Obama Climbs Down from the Public Option

Well, at least he is starting to hear what is happening at the town halls and start to take them seriously.

Obama and his top aides signaled retreat over the weekend on proposals for a provision under which consumers could choose from health insurance policies sold by the federal government as well as those marketed by private companies. "All I'm saying is, though, that the public option, whether we have it or we don't have it, is not the entirety of health care reform," the president told a town hall-style audience in Grand Junction, Colo., on Saturday. "This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it."

Now we just need more information on these nonprofit Health-Care Co-ops are supposed to be and how they will work. I think the idea of a voluntary thing like joining a co-op is much better then some mandatory thing like ObamaCare.
