    This meeting is an excellent idea.
    I do hope he reminds the Democrats that this healthcare reform is essential to our country and to their remaining control of the White House.
    I guarantee those that do not vote for healthcare will not get re-elected.
    They road Obama's coattails to get elected and now they're acting like the republicans...and letting the republican leaning media scare them to voting against against healthcare.
    The democrats need to toughen up and act like men (or women or whatever the case may be).

    And when will he host a lunch for Republicans? Oh yeah, they don't mind paying for their own lunch.

    Let's hear the sounds of toasts of success in health care bill reform agreements among the Blue Dog and other Dems.. But the thousand-page document is a bummer.

    I hope there is no "Pets not allowed" policy at the WH. Then the senate [D]s can bring their pet senate [R]s around on a leash to let them see how a real gov't is run. A word of caution to the [D] senators though: just remember to let your pets run around the WH grounds for a bit so as to avoid any "accidents" in the lunchroom....many of the senate [R]s are clearly NOT house trained.

    BHO is teaching a new generation of gullible Americans not to trust charismatic liars. Too bad the lesson is so expensive.

    The people have pulled back the curtain on Obamacare. The GOP and some democrats have shown us the goods and Obama can't refute the facts.

    He's lied about the costs, the ability for us to keep our plan and has failed to tell you about hundreds of other items that will result in a loss of liberty.

    47 million uninsured... also another big lie. He's trying to screw 80% of the country who like their current care to make up for the few that don't. In the end we all get crappy care (except for congress).

    Fix healthcare costs... don't toss out the best care in world for political power.
