Washington Takeout: Health Reform and Manners

Friday, October 02, 2009

Todd Zwillich, our Washington correspondent, talks about the affordability of the health care reform bill about to leave the Senate Finance Committee and also cracks the Sideshow File to discuss bad manners in Congress. Republicans are demanding an apology from Democrats in general and Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) specifically. On Tuesday, Grayson said on the House floor that Republicans' plan for health care reform consists of two points: "Don't get sick," and if you do, "Die quickly." He apologized, but it wasn't the kind of apology House Republicans had asked for.

I just caught the end of Todd Zwillich's report on the House Health Care debate. Is he reporting or editorializing? It's all a show?

If there is one thing a reporter in the know ought to know, it's that Republicans have no intention of seeing any meaningful change happen in the health industry.

I wish Democrats, including the president, would remind Republicans that they have had decades controlling government and they brought us to disaster. And they lost both Congress and the presidency because of their lousy governance. So stop obstructing. That's the real show, all they know how to do.
