19. First of all, Unrec for misleading headline. Gibbs answered WHY the PO wasn't in Obama's proposal
Secondly, that doesn't mean they won't use Reconciliation to pass Obama's plan.

Thirdly, if there aren't 50 votes for the PO in the Senate (and there haven't been), then what exactly is anyone going to do to change that? Obama can threaten all he wants, but that isn't going to change the votes of the DLCers who have decided to not support the PO.
