    Republicans demand airtime after Obama health address

    Republicans demand airtime after Obama health address - Yahoo! News

    Battle-ready Republicans are lobbying US television networks for airtime after President Barack Obama's crucial health care address to Congress next Wednesday.

    In a letter to television network bosses, top Republican lawmaker Senator John Boehner asked for time "immediately following the president?s address to a joint session of Congress" on September 9.



    Question is, how are they going to fill up 15 minutes or so with their party mantra: "No".

    Seriously,
    I think its always good though to give both sides time, that way Americans get to see both sides of the issue. I think this can only be helpful to educating people about the facts because whatever is said is going to be scrutinized and it is unlikely either side won't be called out on distorting facts.

    I've got an idea though....the GOP should let that Louisiana guy do it again...you know.... that guy who is supposed to be their strong candidate for President...the guy to take on Obama....who gave such an incredible and stunning response for the GOP once before.

    I bet you they want the Fairness Doctrine now....

    I'm going to laugh if Obama doesn't say anything controversial and the conservatives that took their kids out of class or are throwing a fit for air time afterwords are going to look like idiots.

    Nah, no one matches the pure awesomeness of Steele. Every time he speaks, the democrats look better.

    I do agree that they should have matching air time, I got no problem with it.

    I have no problem with it as long as they speak truth and stick to things with evidence rather than making up things to scare people.

    To those who can remember, was there ever a time when the Dems complained about such a thing? I mean, when the President gave an address and then they demanded time afterward? I find it odd. But, it wouldn't surprise me if they did, I'm just curious.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    If they do not have an alternative plan to present that is actual reform and not this bureaucratic nightmare currently on the table I dont want to hear it.
    Thank you
