To my email I registered at his grass roots site. It’s a quick Rah!Rah! note asking for help lobbying Congress to follow his plan, but one thing stuck out to me
I just finished laying out my plan for health reform at a joint session of Congress. Now, I'm writing directly to you because what happens next is critical -- and I need your help.
Change this big will not happen because I ask for it. It can only come when the nation demands it. Congress knows where I stand. Now they need to hear from you.
The heart of my plan is simple: bring stability and security to Americans who already have health insurance, guarantee affordable coverage for those who don't, and rein in the cost of health care.
Tonight, I offered a specific plan for how to make it happen. I incorporated the best ideas from Democrats and Republicans to create a plan that's bold, practical, and represents the broad consensus of the American people.
I’m very curious to see what specific Republican ideas he incorporated into his plan. I have yet to hear him talk at all about
- reducing interstate barriers to purchasing health care
- offering tax breaks to individuals that businesses get to make health care portable
- tort reform
This just seems more of the same old “Can’t we all stop bickering and agree that I’m right?” that he seems so fond of.
Update: Oops, I missed the lip service to tort reform.
