Pulling no punches this morning on ‘GMA” the White House Press Secretary added:  “We’re focused not on crazy allegations but instead on making this system work for the American people rather than work for insurance companies.”

 

Gibbs also took up the olive branch offered by anti-abortion Democrat Bart Stupak, saying the President is willing to pursue a new negotiated solution to the impasse over abortion funding:  “I think there’s no doubt we can come to a solution that maintains the rules that are in place that federal funds are not used for abortions while protecting a woman’s right to choose.”

 

As for all those stories on White House in-fighting?  “The president has confidence in each and every person that works here…the president is not focused on palace intrigue…he wants us to focus on getting something done for the American people.”
