While it is increasingly frustrating to watch President Obama‘s continued overtures to a party that has no intention of working him no matter what he does, that doesn’t necessarily mean that all GOP ideas are bad ones and should be excluded. In particular, tort reform could prove useful to driving down the costs of health care by freeing doctors from the necessity of practicing defensive medicine. Hopefully after these new additions to Obama’s proposal, Democrats can finally stop pandering and get around to actually passing a bill. – NewsOne Staff

From CNN:

Washington — In a last-ditch attempt to craft a bipartisan health care reform bill, President Obama will release a new proposal Wednesday that will include Republican ideas on tort reform and health savings accounts, according to Democratic officials familiar with the plans.

But top Republicans, including House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Virginia, immediately said the new proposal is not good enough and reiterated calls for the president to scrap the plan and start over.

The situation is setting up a likely showdown that top Democrats say will end up with the president trying to pass the health legislation with only Democratic votes through the legislative shortcut of reconciliation.

In fact, senior congressional Democrats have privately expressed frustration that the president is spending time at this late date reaching out to Republicans, when it has become increasingly clear the two parties can not settle their differences on this contentious issue.

The senior Democrats said they think the White House should be devoting time trying to win over Democrats, because it’s still not clear they can secure a simply majority in the House and Senate for the president’s plan.
