Senior White House officials predicted Sunday that President Obama’s healthcare initiative would pass the House this week and warned Republicans that if they made it an issue in November elections, they did so at their own political peril.

“We’re happy to have the 2010 elections be about the achievement of healthcare reform,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said. “That’s a debate I think we’re obviously comfortable having.”
