What was going on in DC during the summit?

Does anyone know what was happening while Obama was having his health care summit yesterday? They always seem to use these big media events to distract us from what is going on behind the scenes. Anyone want to take a guess?

  • Certain extensions to the Patriot Act were awaiting Obama's signature on his desk today...  A big liberal no-no since Obama spoke AGAINST the PA rpior and during his campaign...  But many liberals have their blinder on.. Locked and Loaded.. Ready to divert and avoid holding him accountable...

  • WHHHAAAAAAA? It couldn't be! So, did he sign them?


    surprisedNow, silly me, I thought Obama was way against the Patriot Act in the Bush days.  How very interesting.

  • "Never waste a crisis" (especially when you can use it to divert from something you'd rather not talk about or shall I say own up to?)

  • Was that what the Dem nastiness was? I did read about some amendment being "snuck into" the bill during the night. Was that this bill?

  • Something is going on in Washington everyday. The summit was a failed attempt to reason with the party of "No". Obama wasted his time.

    In case you didn't watch the summit. The Republicans came to the table with FACTS and IDEAS. Which of course were rejected by the "Party of Marxists". Time to start thinking for yourself, Anon?

    Do you ever say NO to your child/children? Do you ever explain to them that you would LOVE to give them something, but you just can't afford it or it really isn't good for them? Last I learned, "No is still an answer," to bad ideas or indulgent behaviors that will harm someone/anyone.

  • He had people working behind the scenes to get the cap and trade crap pushed Congress as EPA regulations. Yeah, its true. He can't get it passed as an organized bill, so he is doing it through he EPA - the most useless agency of our government. But, it has enormous power and can ruin your life.

    YES, But are you trying to say basic affordable health care is a LUXURY and not a basic need. I would never not meet my children's basic needs. A strong American provides basic affordable health care and education. These are NOT luxuries that you say "NO" to!

  • By not providing affordable health care /insurance, people are going without care or waiting longer to get care. When they do get help, they are hospitalized. The cost is MORE, they can't pay the bill, and NOW that cost is passed on to ME and YOU.
    So why not do it right!
