    Republicans' should never have agreed without groundrules and should walk out now.

    Exclusive: What happens next in health care

    After a brief period of consultation following the White House health reform summit, congressional Democrats plan to begin making the case next week for a massive, Democrats-only health care plan, party strategists told POLITICO.

    A Democratic official said the six-hour summit was expected to “give a face to gridlock, in the form of House and Senate Republicans.”

    Whenever odrama doesn't like what is being said from Repubs he calls it talking points or campaigning. It is time he grew up.

    What a Fake....

    Obama is nothing more than a "bully-leader". This summit can be summed up in a few words, but, being a man of the cloth, and posting on this baord, I won't resort to gutter language to express my frustration with this national farce! :laugh:

    From what I am understanding about this process it is likely that the House will try to pass the current Senate bill as is. Then reconciliation may be used in the Senate when they attempt to make changes to the bill after President Obama has signed it into law.

    It's evident from watching and listening to him that he is in way over his head and doesn't even understand his own legislation.

    As expected, he has spoken more than all the Republicans put together. He rambles , is disjointed, and makes his points through dishonesty and dissembling. His attitude is one of superiority and he's condescending to a fault.

    Arrogance, dishonesty, and ignorance all on display at the same time in the same person.

    I would be, as well, if there was a real one in the show.

    At least a Shelty knows what it's doing, and looks good doing it.

    From Neal Boortz:

    I would have loved to hear Lamar Alexander say "Excuse me, Mr. President, but you're the one who called this summit. Did you call us here to listen to you say the same things you've been saying for a year, or did you call us here to listen to and give some consideration to different ideas?"

    Right on! Never have we had such a pompous, self-important, freedom-averse jerk running our country as we do now.

    And yes, I pray for him...but that doesn't change his massive character and leadership deficiencies.

    Time used:

    Democrats (including Obama): 233 minutes.
    Republicans: 110 minutes
    Obama (solo): 119 minutes.

    Summit???

    What a bunch of horsesqueeze.


    Oh...and another logical farce--here's how it went:

    Democrats, Obama: "Republicans have no ideas, only objections!"
    Republicans: Offer thoughts on tort reform, selling health insurance across state lines and creating insurance pools.
    Democrats, Obama (interrupting Republican ideas): "Like we said...Republicans have no ideas, only objections!"

    Idiots.
