  •  obama did similar things back during the ACA (5+ / 0-)

    fight.  he went to summits etc.  he spoke to business leaders and congress.

    repeatedly.  

    the thing was the house passed a bill with the public option.  senate passed one without it.  the two bills had to be merged in reconciliation.

    we had 60 votes for a short time, not long enough to get this passed congress without requiring republican votes.  when scott brown won, we lost the one vote that got us there.

    -You want to change the system, run for office.
