    Why would anyone with common sense take these folk seriously? This shows they are not serious about addressing the nations problems ... they just want to play politics. It is shades of Mitch McConnell filibustering his own idea minutes after the Democrats accepted it.

    No attribution.

    No link.

    No truth.

    Twenty Republicans attended the meeting. You still rest on a bed of lies. So does the Huffington Post and DailyKos, one of which supplied you the bogus story, I'm sure. But even after blazing a headline across their website that "Republicans skip Obamacare briefing," The Post included the following bit of information in the second paragraph:


    I don't know who is more disingenuous -- you, or the Post for deliberately misleading thousands of readers. I'll go with you. You had to have seen this bit of information in any of the stories you might have cut-and-pasted this from, because they all had it.

    There are over 200 House Republicans. They demanded a meeting. So, why do only 20 show up to a meeting all demanded. Simpe, because they are only playing politics and were dishonest in demanding a meeting. They had and have no program, no polity or intent to help the country

    :laugh: :laugh: Who said the meeting was a White House meeting. Who said the meeting was ever intended to be in the White House?

    Go read the news else you look pretty silly making comments as above.

    Also if you had done your research our would realize that 200 people could fit into the Oval Office ... not necessarily in chairs, but maybe even in charis ... but standing, no problem.

    The Oval Office is:

    Long axis: 35' 10" (10.9m)
    Short axis: 29' (8.8m)
    Height: 18' 6" (5.6m)

    It's been stated that they wanted the meeting kept small. If it were bigger, it'd be the POTUS giving a lecture. They wanted a back and forth discussion.

    If this is the only thing that liberals have to seize on they are in trouble.

    It is just one of many indicators showing how they have no real plans ... their only direction is to be obstructionists with no ideas of their own.

    Demand a meeting. Don't attend.
    Present an idea. It was accepted. Filibuster their own idea.

    Great leadership. ROFL

    IMHO, protocol would not permit 200 congressmem to stand for a meeting.

    Hey Salty. I am not sure about protocol. That was not the fellows comment. Size wise it would be possible. The point is they were clambering for a meeting ... but with no serious intend if one was held. Pure party politics again.

    The meeting was at the White House, bonehead. Get your own facts straight.

    Sorry to have to pop your balloon, but it was a the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as was the earlier briefing for the Democrats.

    Why Should They?

    I rarely post here but read often.

    In my view: Some (many) programs of the Federal Government should be opposed simple because these programs are bad, out-of date or should be implemented by the State or maybe not imposed on the citizens at all. The idea of having an alternative program to replace something the Federal Government has no Constitutional Mandate to provide is wrong.

    We have heard for years that the Army's job is to: "Break things and Hurt people". I seems to me whenever the Federal Government is put in charge of something, they end up breaking it and hurting the very people they proclaim the are going to help!

    So you are saying that the Army should be put in charge of Health Care!

    May not be a bad ideal.

    Individuals go on sick call - see a medic (E-1-4) if the medic thinks a doctor is needed - thats when they get to see one.

    So Military Vets - what do you think of this ideal?
