Incredibly, the Obama administration still holds delusions of bipartisanship. Sam Stein of the Huffington Post reports:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Monday that President Obama is willing to "add various elements" to health care legislation suggested by Republican lawmakers during an upcoming bipartisan meeting on the topic…
"We have to get, frankly, the Republican members of the House and Senate to re-engage in this process," she declared. "I think it is not acceptable that half of the legislative body pushed away from the table when this conversation began months ago and basically said, ‘We don’t want to participate in this process.’
So, rather than showing actual leadership by pushing the Democrat-crafted bill through Congress, the Obama administration wants to "reengage" Republicans.
Earth to President Obama: Republicans do not care about healthcare reform. Their foremost concern is that you fail.
How Obama can continue to be so naïve is beyond me.
