Barack Obama will finally allow a few hours of health care talks to be aired live on C-SPAN.
Republicans have a Truth Squad of Representative-Doctors who are standing by to fact check the health care summit. (If anyone can find where this truth squad is blogging from please let me know in the comments.)
Here’s the Live GOP Response To the Obamacare Kabuki–
…This is cool.
(Thanks Ericka, Sue and Dan for the code.)
Sarah Palin calls the dem’s latest plan “More of the Same, Only More Expensive.”
…I see Obama’s speaking. Did he blame Bush yet?
Here’s a bipartisan quote from Sen. Chris Dodd, regarding today’s summit: “We’ll have that meeting…but far more important, after that meeting, you can either join us or get out of the way.”
–Senator Alexander tells Obama that the GOP wants to start over. (So do the American people.) That will go over like a lead balloon.
UPDATE: Rasmussen reported today- 58% of voters oppose health insurance with a public option if they are forced to switch plans. Only 28% of voters like the idea.
UPDATE: President Obama to Senator Alexander: “Lamar, both I and Lamar went a little bit over our original allocated time. I — not wanting to be a hypocrite — wanted to give you some slack.”
Thanks for the slack.
UPDATE: Did anyone else notice that Obama does not care for Eric Cantor at all? …Someone needs to put together a tape of Obama’s snippy remarks and gestures from today’s meeting. Obama is ANGRY.
More… President scolds Eric Cantor.
UPDATE: From the RNC feed above… From out count, President Obama and Democrats have spoken for 109 minutes. Republicans have spoken for 54 minutes … nearly 2 to 1 in favor of the Obama Democrats.
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI): If you think the American people want a government takeover of health care, I respectfully submit you’re not listening to them.
