Nothing wrong with reform. It's public option and UHC the Republicans won't get on board with.

Hate to tell you most republicans are for some form of reform to healthcare. Republicans have actually tried to offer admendments to the bill , democrats voted them down.

Republican's want healthcare reform as well. What Republican's don't want is a public option that is sold to us based on phony math that only the President himself can replicate. (See numerous CBO analyses for your proof)

It's being intellectually dishonest, at best, to paint the GOP as anti-healthcare reform. Anyone with half a brain understands as much.

Just curious but why weren't republicans so for reform the last 50 years? They appear to have jumped on the bandwagon following Obama's election. They killed reform in 1994 and were gleeful about the current proposals not receiving any republican support until now. They had power for years and NEVER made an attempt at any reform. It's totally dishonest to pretend that they want reform when all they have EVER done is stand in the way of it.

It's nice to see someone put their constituents first and not party politics.

It's nice to see someone of the GOP not being opposed to everything and standing up for something. Imagine that!

Most Conservatives/Moderates are for Tort Reform...which Obama doesn't like.

He wan't free health care for the uninsured, and have them maintain the ability to SUE to medical caregivers all at the same time.

Yeah, I want to be a doctor in the NEW America. Over worked, under paid, and sued by those who get the freebies.

I recognize recent more than I do distant. This is his stance today which is all that matters.
