    Just another example of harvard imperiousness to further the enmity between left and right. “What, I ask you”?, is the point in holding a meeting when the outcome is preordained?, just an attempt to dupe what they think is an uninformed and basicly ignorant public?; A chance to say “See, we tried and they were not receptive”, “we gave it our best shot to no avail”.
    This administration is abominable and thier tactics are all too predictable, this is no way to run a country. Is health care important?, “yes it is”, are there solutions, “Yes there are”.
    The problem is, all or, most of the House and Senate are lawyers and thier claim that Tort reform would not be enough to offset even a minimal cost of health care is bogus; “thier protecting the attorneys and want thier positions on frivolous law suits inviolate. There is at least 1 doctor for every 300 people in the U.S.A. or roughly 874,974 . This figure times a $300,000 a year insurance policy to protect against such law suits would be a giant step in off setting cost and, times 10 years is a major factor. Cut spending in half, Decrease taxes and the jump in new business would be staggering; factor in the figures above and tell me we can't figure this out.
    The above figures seem , “oddly enough”, on a percentage basis to be approximately 1%, which rather equates with the common sense level of Congress, at this rate we'll be flying a new flag if it doesn't change and soon!!..
