Politicalese to English Translation

US Senate says it will not be able to vote on a US healthcare reform bill by August:

“I think that it’s better to have a product that is one that’s based on quality and thoughtfulness rather than trying to jam something through,” Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid told reporters.

Translation:

“We don’t have the votes to pass this thing.”
