Morning Action: Obama and the Left Desperate to Make Obamacare Work

OBAMACARE.  In an effort to fix a bad law, lawmakers created a bill aimed at shifting funds from one part of Obamacare, the Prevention and Public Health Fund, to a the high-risk insurance pool.  Fortunately, this bill was defeated, thanks largely to conservative pressure.  However, the bill may yet return (sub. req’d):
