Today John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Eric Cantor (R-Va) sent a letter to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, "posing questions Republicans want answered before they agree" to meeting with Presiden Obama over health care.
"Assuming the President is sincere about moving forward on health care in a bipartisan way, does that mean he will agree to start over so that we can develop a bill that is truly worthy of the support and confidence of the American people?”
“If the starting point for this meeting is the job-killing bills the American people have already soundly rejected, Republicans would rightly be reluctant to participate.”
And there’s this: “Will Republicans be permitted to invite health care experts to participate?”
Plus: “Will the special interest groups that the Obama Administration has cut deals with be included in this televised discussion?”
You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about.
