    Think Progress » Cantor Unable To Name Any ‘Compromises’ Republicans Are Willing To Make On Health Care Reform

    It's not like he was paying much attention last night anyway, too busy tweeting the entire time probably. "LOL SOCIALISM, DEATH PANELS, NIG- SOCIALIST!"

    The Health-Care Talks: Will Obama Get More Involved? - TIME

    An article back in May from Time.

    Obama is willing to make several concessions to Republicans:

    Tort Reform and Mandatory Insurance are just two examples. Question is, what are the Republicans willing to make concessions of? At this point, Obama is offering them major things they want, any voting down of this bill at this point is mere political grandstanding.

    Edit: Also, Republicans like Eric Cantor crying about how the American people are afraid is entirely hypocrisy. It is because of their lies that Americans are afraid of this bill in the first place. It would be similar to starting a forest fire, and then bitching there are no trees when it finally ends.

    They are playing their little games that have stalled universal health care for the last 50 years.

    Now after all the attempts by Obama to reach out and their refusals compromise at all or even talk, they again go back to the same crap that the president won't talk to them.

    I wish Obama had been able last night to tell the real truth about their partisanship and tell them that they lost the election and they can work with US or piss off.

    Kantor was probably calling his girlfriend at that republican halfway house they rent for hookers and religious counselling.:lol:

    They have lost any moral compass they ever had. How anyone in the middle class can back these current losers and stooges for big industry amazes me. Some people still believe if they get trickled on it is good for the country - Duh.

    Proctologists must have a lot of right wing patients.

    Is Obama so pathetically weak that he cannot pass this bill even with majorities in BOTH houses of Congress? Did you elect a President, or a peon?

    Either Obama's a wreck of a President, or the Republicans are gods.

    Republicans are good con artists some of them. Lie about the bill, make people scared, then claim they won't vote for the bill because the people are scared. Regular political grandstanding tactics. Never mind the fact you refuse to accept that the Blue Dogs are not fully Liberal.

    The majority of Democrats are not even Liberal. :eusa_eh:

    Is liberal your new codeword for communist? Because I'm quite certain a majority of Democrats consider themselves liberal.

    But you do have a point, in that the Blue Dogs are moderates. Moderate whom, if you'll recall, Obama promised to care about. Oh well!

    No, Liberal is not my new codeword for communist.

    American Thinker: Brown Nose Democrats

    American People: Only 36% consider themselves at least somewhat Liberal. Only 10% consider themselves Liberal.

    LOL republicans using Scare tactics?

    It was your Hero Barrack who last night told Americans PEOPLE WILL DIE if we do not pass his BILL now.

    You know kinda like how The sky would fall and Unemployment would cross 8% if we didn't pass his Stimulus. HAR HAR HAR

    Obama's entire Plan involves Using Fear and Scare tactics.

    You people are simply unbelievable.

    Obama is not my hero, in fact I have already been a critic of many things he has done. I also found his speech last night lacking several things. So stop painting with that broad brush of yours there.
