I hope something can come out of tomorrow’s Healthcare Summit between President Obama and the obstructionist Republican Congressmen. I do believe in compromise so if stripping the public option or easing regulations on insurance companies and/or tort reform is a means to getting a comprehensive healthcare bill then put it on the table. This issue is too important for all Americans to be just swept under the table and if republicans don’t try to find common ground on healthcare then democrats should look at reconciliation.
