My question was roundly criticized by liberal pundits.  In criticizing me for highlighting Republican proposals, they assumed that we had never advanced them when we held the majority.  They conveniently forgot that the House passed many of these free-market approaches to health care reform in 2005 and 2006.

The Wall Street Journal was on hand for my exchange with the President.  Despite the President’s evasive and incomplete answer to my question, they quote him as saying that he is “game” to sit down with Republicans and go over our proposals.  They quote me too, “GAME ON!”
