Gibbs Says Obama Not Backing Off Public Option

Posted by | August 18, 2009 17:29 | Filed under: Top Stories

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says reports that President Obama is moving away from supporting a public health care option are overblown.

The rash of reports began after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (seh-BEEL’-yuhs) appeared to signal the president was open to health care cooperatives as an alternative.


Gibbs said there was no intention to indicate a change in policy. He said, “If it was a signal, it was a dog whistle we started blowing weeks ago.”


So, maybe they’re blowing dog whistles to see who sits up and takes notice, only to retreat to avoid being in the doghouse themselves.
