Financial Times:

The White House has not abandoned a public insurance plan, which would compete with private providers, but Rahm Emanuel, the president’s chief of staff, said it was only one way to get cheaper and broader coverage. “The goal is non-negotiable,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “The path is.”

The words...were encouraging for doubting Democrats and moderate Republicans, who want a bipartisan approach that leaves out the government-sponsored option.

Bipartisanship: because if there is one thing competing political parties can agree on, it's leaving out what's favored by a majority of the country.
