Is the Obama White House starting to play hardball on health care reform?

There is some evidence that it is, not least in some of the preliminary leaks about the comprehensive proposal Obama is about to put on the table. As Mark Kleiman put it yesterday:
Barack Obama is going to give Republicans a chance to vote for huge increases in health insurance premiums. Good luck with that, fellas.
We'll see how this works out.
