    The Republicans are trying to block a bill that they should be helping to create. I criticize that as well.
    I dont understand why people think that Republicans would or could cave in on the issue of the Public Option.

    I alos don't understand why the Dems, if they have the votes that The Obama says they have, don't just pass the thing instead of harping on the GOP?

    The dems have the votes, or so The Obama says.
    Why not vote and pass it?

    The question also arises that if republicans want health care reform, why don't we have it?
    Good question -- see above.

    Because this is not the Bush Administration and Obama's administration encourages bipartisanship. I know - hard to comprehend.
    and so it goes...

    (Which, mostly likely, is true.)

    If you think it's off-topic, report it, ignore it, or say that it's off-topic at the time. But after this lengthy exchange, now it's suddenly the tack you want to take? Not credible in the least.




    Yes, which is hypocritical of him, because he's talking about "obstructionism" which HE SAYS can't actually "obstruct" anything -- which means he's doing it for the "sake of politics" himself. Thus, he deserves the same criticism for the same reason.

    Uh, see, you DID know what the problem was. And, you think the one has something to do with the other.

    If that were true, The Obama wold offer a bill that the GOP could support.
    Given that He hasnt and that He won't, your response is incorrect.

    Want to try again, or is that your final answer?

    You're going to have to parse out this babbling a bit more.

    What is the problem that you claim I know, and what does it not (?) have "something to do with"?

    If it's that simple, why can't you just answer the question in simple terms? Lay it out.

    And the GOP will only support their own model because apparently providing an affordable option that our near monopolistic health care system can't is fascism.
    and so it goes...

    Apparently "if you can make this bill better, I'd love to hear about it!" is what passes for "bipartisanship." Doesn't matter that the opposition thinks it's ill-conceived from the ground up; no, a suggestion box to tweak Obama's agenda on a few minor points -- that's bipartisanship.
