Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) told The Associated PressFriday that health care reform, possibly including near universal coverage, will happen this year.
“It will not be a perfect bill, it will not be a complete answer,” said the stalwart Wyoming conservative. “But it will get a lot done. It may well even get the goal of having every American insured done.”
Enzi’s comments matter because he is a member of the so-called Board of Directors, a bipartisan group of senators who are taking the lead in the Senate’s main legislative vehicle for overhauling the nation’s health care system.
The question is whether Enzi’s remarks are another sign of good faith negotiationor a kinder, gentler version of persistent Republican demands that Obama drop a centerpiece of his plan: the creation of a public insurance plan to compete with private insurers. Obama sees a public plan as keyto covering 47 million uninsured Americans by making affordable health insurance available to those who don’t qualify for Medicaid or SCHIP and don’t have insurance through work, and to small businesses that want to offer insurance to their employees. Opponents see it as a stalking horse for a single-payer plan.
