Don't Budge Republicans

If Obama passes his health care plan without a single contributing vote from the Republicans, we'll see it for exactly what it is - a big spending, deficit enriching, potentially bankrupting, unconstitutional attempt to do what shouldn't be done. So don't you dare participate, Republicans. This way it also will be easiser to repeal in January.

OK, so now the President is all-of-a-sudden open to including 5 provisions that Republicans wanted. Do you really think he wants them included? Or do you think he just wants his plan passed and will do and say whatever he has to to get the votes?

I'm going with the latter. This is another great reason to steer clear of supporting this.

Next year, if the new Republican Congress wants to consider health care reform - and they may not want to do it - they can start from scratch. My suggestion - if you do write something keep it under 10 pages.

In answer to your question about whether Obama does or does not want those five points in the Health Care bill... the act of putting them in the bill is what is called a "compromise."

I am guessing that if the Republic members of the Senate would become more involved... they could dhave more of what THEY wanted in the bill.  But... they do not participate.  They are the Party of No.  It is all just a game with them.

Karen,

I agree it's a game, but you have the players confused. The Dems are the ones playing games - with our financial future. The Republicans are telling the AMerican people that they get it. :)

Karen Anne:  Prior to the Obama meeting, those 5 points and many others, were presented as Amendments to the bill.  They were rejected by Dems over and over again.  The Republicans also presented Amendments to allow competition across state lines and institute tort reform.  Both of those concessions would produce huge financial savings in the industry.  Those are points the American people want to see as part of health care reform. They were rejected.

If the Republicans are the party of no, the Dems are the party of "Our way or no way"!

While the concepts presented by the Republicans were added to the existing bill, it is unclear if the language was acceptable. It is unknown if the additions achieved the goals the Republicans were seeking or simply added as fluff.  

Compromise means both side gives and takes.  Obama sat down and said - "This is the Bill build on it".  The Republican ideas were simply tack ons.  Obama refused to negotiate on the existing bill. Nothing the Repulcans objected to in the bill was removed.

The Dems - gave up nothing.  That is not compromise.
