Quick Hit: Obama’s Healthcare Summit Leads to More Partisan Wrangling

Exhibit A, according to CNN:

12:30 p.m.: Sen. John McCain slams the special deals inserted in the Senate health care bill, saying those should be removed so that the American people will know “that geography does not dictate what kind of health care they will receive.”
Obama shoots back, “Let me just make this point, John, because we’re not campaigning anymore. The election is over.”
McCain interjects, “I’m reminded of that every day.”

You know what we’re reminded of every day McCain? That we no longer have a form of government that actually serves the American people. Rather, we are subjected to politicians obsessed with re-election, special interests, and the media spotlight. I honor what Obama is trying to do, even as the spectacle is further depressing me. Ugh.
