Just criticism

Some ideas are just flat out bad ideas. Creating further mire in the tax code does more harm than good. Please, do us a favor Mr. President. Get out and stay out of the healthcare business.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Bush brushed aside criticism of his new health care plan as “reflexive” partisanship and urged the Democratic-led Congress to work with him on the issue.

The president’s proposal, to offer tax breaks to people to encourage them to buy health insurance on their own while taxing some with employer-provide health coverage, has received a chilly reception from Democratic lawmakers, labor unions and some consumer groups.

But Bush, who unveiled his plan in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, said that he has spoken to some Senate Democrats who seemed willing to open discussions.

“While some members gave a reflexive partisan response, I was encouraged that others welcomed this opportunity to reach across the aisle,” Bush said in his weekly radio address.

“One Democratic senator said the initiatives I put forward were ‘serious proposals’ and encouraged his fellow Democrats to ‘respond in a constructive way,'” Bush said.

He said that another Democratic senator had pledged to work toward the goal of expanding health coverage “through sincere bipartisan efforts.”
