The president is “totally not serious” about considering Republican ideas, Morris says in an interview with Newsmax.TV. “He’s giving us a terrible bill.”

Some lay in soiled sheets that relatives had to take home to wash, others developed infections or had falls, occasionally fatal.

Ann Coulter: What Part of “Party of No” Don’t You Understand?

Inasmuch as Obamacare has a snowball’s chance in hell of passing (but did you see how much snow they got in hell last week?), everyone is wondering what President Obama is up to by calling Republicans to a televised Reykjavik summit this week to discuss socializing health care.

Obama Plays By Chicago Rules In Health Care Fight

On Monday President Obama revealed how unwilling he is to move toward the GOP, by introducing yet another massive proposal that not only reinforces many of the elements of governmental intrusion into the health care economy that the Republicans have already rejected but, in the words of several commentators, “doubles down” on what the Democrats in Congress have already thrown up for consideration.

Bipartisanship Equals Single-Payer-ship

It’s not a good idea for Republicans to accept President Barack Obama’s invitation to a “bipartisan” health care summit, because it would not advance acceptable health care reform. The only thing it likely would advance would be Obama’s propaganda message — and, thus, his socialist agenda.

Planned Healthcare Summit Is Just an Infomercial in Disguise
