President Obama today is holding his health care summit to “bridge the gaps” that exist between what Republicans think is best for the country with regard to healthcare reform and what the Democrats want to see passed.
In his opening remarks, President Obama said, “I hope that this isn’t political theater where we’re just playing to the cameras and criticizing each other, but instead actually trying to solve the problem.” I couldn’t agree more!
Cameras tend to make congressmen less effective and more prone to grandstanding; on the other hand, we were promised transparency by this administration. Just one question – where were all the cameras when those backroom deals were being made to buy the votes of Democrats to support the healthcare reform bills initially? Just asking.
