The Detroit News published a thought provoking editorial today regarding health care. See an excerpt here:
The motive for last week's so-called bipartisan health care summit is coming into sharper focus. Now that the Democratic majority in Washington has given Republicans a chance to put their ideas on the table, it considers itself justified in ignoring the GOP, declaring the differences irreconcilable and moving ahead to ram through their version of health care reform.
An editorial in the New York Times pronounced the chasm between the two parties "too profound to be bridged" and sees as the only recourse Congress bending its own rules to pass the Democratic health care bill.
Organizing for America, the action arm of the White House's propaganda machine, noted that President Barack Obama had "extended a hand to the Republicans and showed he's open to any idea that will help cover the uninsured, cut costs, and give Americans control over their own health care. ... After this meeting, all ideas are on the table. Now, Congress must move swiftly to complete and pass a final bill."
