White House denies report it’s considering scaled-back HCR plan

According to the Huffington Post, the White House is denying a Wall Street Journal report that the President is considering a scaled-back health care reform plan that’s much smaller than the one he proposed for tomorrow’s summit with Democratic and GOP leaders. An administration official says that while a fallback option had been developed after the Massachusetts election defeat, the administration isn’t considering it at the moment. I don’t know what to think, but it’s not very helpful having this information out there on the eve of the summit. The White House needs to get these leaks under control, and keep its overall messaging on point.
