Prep for the dog and pony show

Let's hope the socialists in the White House read TimesOnline.
Here's the lead from a story it just published about Britain's National Health Service.
"Patients were routinely neglected or left “sobbing and humiliated” by staff at an NHS trust where at least 400 deaths have been linked to appalling care."
That's socialized medicine.
Sure, everyone is covered.
But does everyone get health care?
Why did a top politician in Canada, where everyone is covered, go to the United States for his own treatment?
If Republicans insist on meeting with President Obama tomorrow to talk about health care, those are the questions they should ask.
Obama called the meeting to get input from the GOP on their ideas about health care. But Monday he unveiled his own plan, at last, without GOP input. Furthermore, congressional leaders are planning to ram the plan through Congress by ignoring rules they called fair just a few years ago -- if they can.
And, if that video makes you applaud liberals for their high principles, see this one for how they actually do business.
The liberals' problem is that Democrats don't like the plan either. Nor does the American public.
Republicans will be used as props by the president but they have the better plan. Just don't plan on the media spinning the story that way.
