During the Super Bowl interview with perky CBS anchor (because she's dragging them down?) Katie Couric, Obama invited Republican Congressional leaders to participate in a half-day televised health care summit.
The Washington Post quotes Obama,
"I want to consult closely with our Republican colleagues," Obama said. "What I want to do is to ask them to put their ideas on the table. . . . I want to come back and have a large meeting, Republicans and Democrats, to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there and move it forward."Life News via Gateway Pundit says,
In comments reported by Congress Daily, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s top health care aide Wendell Primus admitted top Democrats have already decided on the strategy to pass the Senate’s pro-abortion, government-run health care bill.Nearly every poll currently shows that 51% of Americans oppose current health care overhaul proposals with very few undecided. Congressional Democrats are not reading the numbers on the wall and are running full steam ahead into political suicide.
Primus explained that the Senate will use the controversial reconciliation strategy that will have the House approve the Senate bill and both the House and Senate okaying changes to the bill that the Senate will sign off on by preventing Republicans from filibustering.
“The trick in all of this is that the president would have to sign the Senate bill first, then the reconciliation bill second, and the reconciliation bill would trump the Senate bill,” Primus said at the National Health Policy Conference hosted by Academy Health and Health Affairs.
“There’s a certain skill, there’s a trick, but I think we’ll get it done,” he said.
