So much for transparency - LA Times: "Democrats quietly working to resuscitate healthcare overhaul." If you read the article, you'll find that the subtext is that they don't intend to make significant adjustments to the legislation as it stands. Instead Pelosi and Reid are going to do some old-fashioned arm-twisting and horse-trading behind closed doors while hoping to "shift public perception of the bill," i.e. get those stupid Americans to come around.

Extra - Red State: "Sen. Snowe flat out rejects reconciliation." Considering that key Democrats have rejected this parliamentary trick and Republicans have warned they'll bog it down with amendments, there's virtually no chance health care will pass in this manner.
