The roundtable with Obama

If you caught a glimpse of the meeting with the D's, R's and President Obama over the Health Care Reform proposals, you witnessed the perfect storm of political theater coupled with the ideological differences between the two parties, that was embarrassing to watch. Grown men and women claiming their set of facts are true, while the other side says no. It's sad to see, after all the debates, how millions of dollars of lobbyists money has divided this country and crippled what little work gets done in Washington for so many critical issues. Both sides, just like here in Mass, should be ashamed and embarrassed.

What happened to Obama's promise of bipartisan politics? You can not blame this on just the Republicans, his own party, the dems, are doing just as lousy a job of being fair and equitable as their counter parts on the other side of the political spectrum. There has to be a middle ground between the two sides, and I simply do not understand why they can not find that.

And as of today, one slug from Kentucky has filibustered a bill that would extend UE benefits to 1 million people, due to expire next week.

To be honest I am too busy trying to keep up with what is happening here in MA to get involved in what is going on in DC, especially since what is going on there seems to be a whole bunch of nothing. I often wonder what other countries think of us when they see how very little agreement we can get to get anything done in this country. We are not exactly a great advertisment for the benefits of a democratic way of government, and that is a damm shame.
