DescriptionWASHINGTON - Former Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean says he still thinks Democrats can get a scaled-back health care bill through Congress.

But Dean also said in a nationally broadcast interview Friday he doubts Republicans will work with Democrats on a compromise measure, even one far more modest and less costly than versions passed by the House and Senate.

Appearing on CBS's "The Early Show," the former Vermont governor said he believes Republicans concluded "they can benefit" politically from resisting President Barack Obama's ambitious health overhaul. But he also said the American people want changes in the system, saying "they didn't want something that was written by the insurance industry."
