Skip to comments.Healthcare Summit : Chicago Style
Posted on 02/26/2010 5:25:08 AM PST by RobinMasters
Senate Democrat moderates probably slept well last night, but no House Blue Dog should have. In the marathon Blair House healthcare summit, the Chicago Obama family made it perfectly clear that the Senate Dems are protected made men but the House members are expendable in Obamas pursuit of nationalizing healthcare.
The summit convened after a round of new polls showed -- again -- that most Americans dont want Obamacare. A Quinnipiac poll showed Americans disapproved of Obamas healthcare plan by 54-35 percent. Rasmussen said 56% opposed and 41% approved, and both Pew Research and PPP said 50% were opposed to it. The opposition will almost certainly rise after yesterdays media event.
For that is what it was. It was precisely as Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind) characterized it to me last night. The summit wasnt anything resembling an honest debate or a real negotiation. Pence pointed out that Obama opened the meeting with comments that directly contravened his stated objectives for the summit. Instead of opening the summit to a debate and negotiation of both sides positions, Obama began by stating that his purpose was to make the case for his healthcare bill.
Obama and the Crats look more and more like the Jim Jones Cult. What flavor Obama Aide will they use for the mass suicide?
The GOP should have let Paul Ryan speak then get up & leave.

Color me relieved. I don’t even try to keep up on all the rules for posting from various publications, so I really wasn’t sure.
