    Default Republicans wary of Obama's public health care summit

    Republicans have said all along they want the health care debate out in the open and criticized President Barack Obama for holding discussions behind closed doors.

    So Obama proposes a televised summit with Democrats and Republicans and now the GOP says it's not too sure that's such a good idea.

    Yeah, but the Republicans said they wanted the health care debate out in the open and Obama called them out and now they are backing down.

    Just like that you expect them to trust O and the dems? If you read the rest of the article, what they are saying ans asking makes sense considering what has gone on to date.

    Roger, what part of "No" don't you, Obama and the rest of the libs understand? According to recent Rasmussen Polls, 61% of Americans say it's time for Congress to drop Health Care reform while 58% oppose the plan before Congress. Recent elections also indicate that people don't want the government jacking with their health care. Give it a rest and address more pressing problems. If they must, concentrate on the uninsurable (not uninsured - there is a difference!) That's where the real problem lies

    Pick your poll I guess. Here is a new Washington Post/ABC Poll:

    After ABC's Health Care Infomercial with Obama, I'm not sure how creditable their poll results are.

    So much hand wringing about the Republicans. It's the Democrats in Congress that can't come together on health care. It's the Democrats in the House who can't agree with the Democrats in the Senate that held up and ultimately killed the bill.

    Besides, the bill awaiting reconcilliation between the House and Senate was written entirely by Democrats and crafted behind closed doors. All Obama wants to do is tinker with that POS legislation, tweak it here and there and find a Republican or two to bite so he can crow that it's bipartisan. The GOP leaders in Congress should hold out for a complete rewrite...this time WITH their input. To do anything less makes them either the dog or the pony in Obama's Big Show.
