In his opener, Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) was much more aggressive and scolding in tone than Obama, Alexander, or Pelosi. He also said two things that are ridiculous:
“No one is talking about reconciliation,” except the 20-plus Senators and 100-plus House members who have signed letters advocating its use.
“If [Republicans] have a better plan for making health-care more affordable, let’s hear it,” not more than ten minutes after Alexander outlined them, no more than a few days removed from Robert Gibbs and Dan Pfeiffer embarrassing themselves about the apparent non-existence of a Republican alternative plan that has been CBO-scored (reduces premiums 10 percent!) and posted on the White House web site.
