    Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Obama used to support a single-payer health care plan but flip-flopped on the issue because of the “Rahm Emanuel Factor.”

    Conyers described that as meaning the White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, who is one of the president’s senior advisers, will cut any deal necessary to help elect Democrats next year and re-elect Obama in 2012.
