Has a new day dawned after the health care summit?

posted by Susan Johnson

Will Republicans and Democrats come together and work on the problems with our health care system? Jon Stewart is certainly hopeful that the summit will produce a meaningful dialog on health care that can lead to real change:But of course this is Washington where bipartisanship is doing what the party in power wants to do:

After a brief period of consultation following the White House health reform summit, congressional Democrats plan to begin making the case next week for a massive, Democrats-only health care plan, party strategists told POLITICO.A Democratic official said the six-hour summit was expected to “give a face to gridlock, in the form of House and Senate Republicans.”Democrats plan to begin rhetorical, and perhaps legislative, steps toward the Democrats-only, or reconciliation, process early next week, the strategists said.After the summit, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid planned to take the temperature of their caucuses.”The point [of the summit] is to alter the political atmospherics, and it will take a day or two to sense if it succeeded,” the official said.

John Stewart may be funny, but he can also have some very worthwhile things to say about world events. Look underneath the comedy and you’ll find that this jewish history major is actually a really smart guy with a well informed perspective.
In regards to Karen’s comment though: I don’t think the video link was meant to come across as “news” rather than give some comedic flavor to the article. The author basically disagrees with John Stewart below the link. So there’s no point to go off on him/her about trying to “copy and paste the news” when that isn’t what he/she is doing at all.
Also, watch the Healthcare Summit for yourselves at C-SPAN (.org). I would suggest skipping the first hour or so because it’s just politicians giving introductions, the real conversation begins after that. You’ll see there is a difference between what the news media says happened and what really happened. I found it quite infromative, well most of it :)

One Final Word
My dear friend Michele slipped into eternity on Wednesday, February 1.   She was a remarkable woman who left a legacy of faith, determination, and love. For three years she courageously battled the ovarian cancer that eventually robbed her of her life.  A few days before she died, one of her docto

The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated
My husband told me that there are rumors that I've died. I'm happy to report that I'm still very much alive. My cancer has gone to stage four but we are controlling it with chemo, the cancer numbers are currently in the normal range. I've stopped blogging to concentrate on my daughters and writing a

An update and a prayer request
Several people have asked about Michele's condition, and have promised to pray for her. On her behalf, I thank you for that. I spoke with her a little while ago, and she asked that I come here and tell you what's going on, and to ask you to pray for her. She isn't able to post here herself right
