Live Health Care Summit Clusterf**k Action! (Now With Hash Tags!)

The White House has its official Health Care Summit Twitter hash tag. And the video is streaming for those of you who are the type that can’t look away from car wrecks on the highway.

Republicans demanded the public, on-camera summit, and then they dismissed it as political theater. (It was a refreshingly honest self-assessment of their strategy, actually.) Republicans also demanded that Barack Obama post his compromise bill online before the summit, and then they blasted him for posting a bill online before the summit. (Nothing as moronic as a Republicn politican is there?)

Okay so lets be real here and not mince words or get caught in spin.  This whole summit thing is a waste of time. It’s only purpose is to embarrass Republicans (and rightfuully so the DO deserve it) and give political cover to House Democrats to vote for this thing that they’re terrified of voting for, even though they already did and its turned into something that was well meaning in the beginning but has turned into something other than actual reform and a bill that would help those too poor for insurance. After all it used to be a health care plan, actually. It is now the Senate Health Insurance Reform bill.

This just really shows how dysfuntional our Goverment is.  And if you want proof at how crazy and insane Republicans are in todays session Republican Tom Coburn  blamed diabetes and obesity on food stamps.

This fucking thing is a nightmare.
