    likes President Olympia Snowe’s trigger, unfortunately…

    The wheels may be coming off the cart of the Democrats’ all-in-this together strategy for overhauling healthcare.

    And according to two reports, the people doing the wheel removing work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    Last week, conservative Democratic senators broke the news that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was considering including a provision in the Senate healthcare bill which would create a government-run healthcare option but allow states to opt out.

    On Friday, Politico claimed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was coming up short when corralling votes for the “robust” public option she’d promised. Critics dismissed the report, but the New York Times subsequently reported that there were indications Pelosi was short of the needed votes to pass a more aggressive public plan.

    And on Saturday night, just in time for the Sunday talk shows, The Huffington Post reported what numerous Democrats already feared: that President Barack Obama was privately cold to the Senate’s opt-out public option, fearing that his party doesn’t have the votes to pass it. Obama, the story says, favors a proposal floated by Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), which would put a public option in place only if insurance companies failed to meet a certain threshold of cost control.
