“If we’re unable to resolve differences over health care, we will need to move ahead on decisions … that’s what elections are for.”
President Barack Obama
So for all the blather… the results remain the same. We’re large, and we’re in charge. So much for their so called attempt at reconciliation, and bipartisanship.
Maybe the Democrats need a vocabulary lesson, from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
Main Entry: bi·par·ti·sanPronunciation: \(ˌ)bī-ˈpär-tə-zən, -sən, -ˌzan, chiefly British ˌbī-ˌpär-tə-ˈzan\Function: adjectiveDate: 1895
: of, relating to, or involving members of two parties ; specifically : marked by or involving cooperation, agreement, and compromise between two major political parties
Not the “you’ll go along with us and like it” mentality clearly displayed at this meeting.
The latest Gallup poll out shows the gap between those who oppose the health care bill as it stands right now, and those who support it, is getting wider. 52% of those surveyed are opposed to the attempts by Democrats to circumvent a filibuster by passing health care by a simple majority, as compared to 39% who favor it.
Here are some more words the Democrats may need a lttle help with:
Main Entry: ar·ro·gancePronunciation: \ˈer-ə-gən(t)s, ˈa-rə-\Function: nounDate: 14th century
: an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions
