Health Care Summit Sum Up So Far–UPDATED

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Obama: Whatever you can do, we’ve done better.

Pelosi: People are sad.

Reid: People are sad and Republicans suck.

Alexander: Here are the CBO facts.

Obama to Alexander: You lie.

Coburn, MD: We should cut costs.

Baucus: Mumble, mumble. Incoherent gibberish.


Obama: I won.


It is my sense that the Democrats want to get across the message that “we mostly agree” so that when the Republicans and Blue Dogs howl at this nonsense, they’ll argue bad faith.

I don’t think that message is working. The Republicans are talking facts, not emotions.
