Shallow Obama and his czars are dictating to the people, "We are the rulers of the nation, know what is best for you and we will impose it on you regardless what your preference."

Then the White House is all aboard. Right on cue, Majority Leader Harry Reid put out a statement that he will work to "craft a public option that can overcome procedural obstacles."
