What a complete waste of time. The same old players, talking mostly the same old talking points. I did enjoy seeing the President squirm in his chair when he was reminded of his remarks on reconciliation.
Other than a few nuggets of good info, the vast majority was just hot air.
Yeah, I was watching a completely different thing where Obama punked out most of the Republican talking points at the same time agreeing with most of their plans. If anyone came out looking like an idiot its Bohener, the minority House whip. Its people like him that makes me question the intelligence of the American voter at least in his state. If anything, it showed the Republicans either want to start over with all of their plans which if it did happen will not be voted until after the 2010 or their plans contradict one another. I did like The Illinois senator's comment about if you this is a socialist plot please feel free to get rid of the health insurance you have now since that is what we are trying to accomplish. I thought that was hysterical. Reconciliation is going to happen and when it does you will see people switch party lines to vote for it.
