What Dan Pfeiffer Didn't Say
Reacting to the reports that the White House is pressuring Harry Reid to give up on the public option, White House aide Dan Pfeiffer said:
The report is false. The White House continues to work with the Senate on the merging of the two bills[.] We are making good progress toward enacting comprehensive health reform.
What report is false? That the White House is pressuring Reid? Ok, let's accept that. Here's a question for an intrepid reporter to ask - what exactly IS the White House saying to Reid? Pfeiffer does not say. To pass the hot potato back to Reid, the White House - ALL of it - will have to be Jarrettesque (I'm looking at you "top Administration officials" Rahmbo and Messina.)
Speaking for me only
