Democrats push ahead

Subject: txt hcare libs -
Democrats pushed hard to revive President Barack Obama's stalled health care overhaul on Friday. At the White House, press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama would unveil a "way forward" next week on legislation that has been his foremost domestic priority.

At least for now, Democrats envision prevailing by getting the House to pass a Senate health bill, and also sending Obama a separate measure making changes in the Senate package.

The alterations include deleting a politically toxic provision that would have Washington finance expanded Medicaid coverage in Nebraska, easing a new tax on high-priced insurance policies that would have affected labor unions and making federal subsidies for poorer people more generous.
