White House budget director Peter Orszag expects health care reform bills by August. Orszag says some are trying to slow down the process in an attempt to kill it. “The typical Washington bureaucratic game of — ‘if you don’t have a better alternative, just delay in the hope that that kills something’ is partly what’s playing out here,” said Orszag.

Think Progress noted that GOP consultant Alex Castellanos suggested “if we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it.”
