Health Summit: A Public Co-Option?

Still doubt that the Church of Universal Coverage is a bona fide religion?  Consider:

  1. The American people have been solidly against the Democrats’ universal-coverage plan since July 2009.
  2. Roughly 60 percent of the public wants Congress to scrap that legislation and start over.
  3. President Obama will nevertheless use that legislation as the starting point for negotiations with Republicans at next week’s health care summit.

Mmmm, that’s good fervor.

Republican summiteers shouldn’t spend too much time discussing their own ideas – which aren’t going anywhere, and really aren’t that great anyway – lest they unwittingly aid Democrats in changing the below-illustrated narrative.  They should instead focus like a laser beam on the dangers of the Democrats’ legislation, and how dangerously close it is to becoming law.

Then they can all return to the drawing board and come back with better ideas.
