Republicans called on their bluff

The Hill reports that “Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and David Vitter (R-La.) are preparing an amendment to force members of Congress into any public option health plan that becomes law”.

 

This is in an effort to scare Congress men and women to vote against health care reform in case a public option is included.

 

Sen. Sherod Brown (D-OH) said that he wants to co-sponsor the bill but that Cobrun and Vitter will not let him.

 

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said, “If [the public option] is good enough for the American people — and they don’t think it is — then it ought to be good enough for Congress.”

 

I think it is time for the Republicans to put up or shut up.

 

Brown stated “I’ve called their office four times. I’m proud of the public option, I think it would be great and we ought to join it and show the country how good it is. I think my interest may be more genuine than theirs, but I’d like to work with them if they’ll let me. If they just want to score partisan points, I still want to work with them.”

 

It looks like Coburn and Vitter’s plan is backfiring.
