Sen. Jon Kyl just confirmed the suspicions of most liberals fearful that the White House is giving away too much in the health care debate.
The Senate Republican whip, speaking to reporters on a conference call from his home state of Arizona, said that even if the Democrats do away with a government-run insurance option, the GOP most likely won’t support the bill that’s being written in the Senate.
“I think it’s safe to say that there are a huge number of big issues that people have,” Kyl said, referring to Republican senators. “There is no way that Republicans are going to support a trillion-dollar-plus bill.”
Personally I’m tired of hearing about how bipartisan bills are better for America. If both parties are contributing ideas to strengthen the bill then yes, this can be good. If one side is just plugging its ears and stomping its feet what is even the point? There’s no way you can turn “we want nothing whatsoever no matter what” into a workable compromise.
