Healthcare Summit your thoughts and Latta's thoughts


Bob Latta's thoughts:

WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following statement regarding today’s health care summit.

“Instead of coming to today’s health care summit with an open mind and a clean sheet of paper, President Obama and Congressional Democrat Leadership decided to argue with Congressional Republicans on why their health care reform plans are superior to Republican proposals. A majority of Americans continue to disagree with the health care reform proposals passed by Democrats in the House and Senate and incorporated into the President’s new proposal- which should have been reflected today with an honest effort to start from scratch.

Unfortunately, Republican members in attendance were the only ones who mentioned the trillion dollar price tags of the Democrat bills financed by billions in tax increases, rationing of health care for millions of Americans, and an unprecedented expansion of federal bureaucracy that will come directly between patients and their doctors as they make health care decisions.

Today’s summit could have been the beginning of a true bipartisan effort, but the President and Congressional Democrats chose to continue down the same ‘our way or the highway’ path that will do nothing to bring us any closer to meaningful health care reform.”

He went quite a while without his teleprompter and, besides the bold-faced lies, made fewer mistakes than his previous healthcare rants like this one.

I'm more and more convinced that the Dems will try reconciliation. I don't even know if they can get it through the house with it.

But to that I pray that they do. By doing that it will push everyone to the Republicans because they won't want them to be the party of no they'll want them to be the party of HELL NO!


Although every poll shows that the majority of Americans do not want ObamaCare, and if the Dems force it through with reconciliation then the 2010 election landslide for Republicans will be a moot point.

Once this abortion of socialist healthcare is passed, November will be too late to vote their butts out of office.
