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.

I can't beleive no matter what your party, that people wouldn't want to include everyone in the decisions this big. It isn't just about republicans, it is that the president is OK ignoring a third of the country. That should bother people on both sides. If something has half of the country upset, don't do it until you have a better solution. Why should people have to pay for something they don't want.

The American people have been very clear that they do not want this. Time for our government to start listening to the people...

Ross and Raylene,

Our government has proven that they are not interested in representing us - just themselves. :)

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,

So glad you are following our discussion. The Republicans were intentionally excluded from all of the high level, closed door discussions. That's why their ideas aren't in the bill. :)
