Calling Obama’s Bluff?

Borger: GOP should call Obama’s bluff. <-for full story

On, Gloria Borger states her opinion about how the political parties are doing with health care reform. She says that since the Republicans say they agree with 80% of the guidelines, they should vote for the reforms and then see if Obama does what he says he will.

But the Republicans do not want Obama to win, so they won’t pass the legislation, says Borger. They are following a plan so they can win seats in 2010 by saying they did not agree with Obama.

I think all the talking and debating is not getting us anywhere right now. Stop talking about it and do something. The only way that a compromise will come is if both parties start working on an actual reform and try to work together. They need to put aside their political agendas and begin working together for the good of America. Actually doing something good is the best thing they can do for their political party, instead of stopping something from happening.

I’m sure there is something both parties can agree on, even if it’s not exactly what they want. But they will have to grow up. And then we will see what Obama will do.
