Pelosi Says There Will be a Healthcare Bill

Obama will urge healthcare bill in his state of the union speech tonight. Once something passes--if something passes-- they should continue to work on healthcare. Maybe they'll be able to come up with more meaningful legislation out of the spotlight, once healthcare moves to the back burner, perception-wise.
Asked if Congress might abandon a health care initiative beset with political and policy problems, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., responded: "I don't see that as a possibility. We will have something."

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer told congressional staff that Obama will use Wednesday night's address to reiterate his commitment to an ambitious remake of the nation's health care system, similar to the call he issued last September after critics seized the momentum during a summer of angry town hall meetings.
