Simpson: Summit Was ‘Just For Show’

“Unfortunately, my fears about this summit were realized: rather than a substantive discussion about health care reform, the President’s summit was just for show. ... It seems the Democrats were more interested in selling the American people the bills they have supported in the House and Senate rather than working together to accomplish health care reform that we can all agree on.” While Democrats have been trying to dub Republicans as the party of “no” when it comes to working on health care reform, the fact is the GOP has several reforms they have been touting for months. To learn more about these reforms, visit here/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Do you think health care reform is a dead issue after the continued deadlock that came out of the summit Thursday?
