You Can’t Work With People Who Don’t Want to Work With You

Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) today:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that the Senate would not attempt to pass sweeping health care reform until after returning from the August recess.

“It’s better to get a product that’s based on quality and thoughtfulness than on trying to just get something through,” Reid told reporters.

Reid said the Senate would try to complete a package in the fall.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) yesterday:

I just hope the President keeps talking about it, keeps trying to rush it through. We can stall it. And that’s going to be a huge gain for those of us who want to turn this thing over in the 2010 election.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) last week:

“it will be his Waterloo, it will break him.”

These guys are not even trying to present the appearance of being collegial or of actually, you know, doing something to help fix health care. All they want is a few more buddies to joint them in the club next year. It’s a game. We’re up, they’re down.

We are so screwed.
