Obama Plans Televised Health Care Summit to Persuade Republicans to Back Bill

cross-posted from A Catholic View couldn't be more clear that Americans do NOT want government-run healthcare, but Barry keeps pushing it.
Personally, I don't think Republicans have anything to gain by participating in this charade.

President Barack Obama is planning a televised health care summit later this month in an effort to salvage the pro-abortion government-run health care bill. The plan is an effort to revive his sagging polling numbers and that of the legislation that has seen just one Republican support it in Congress.

White House officials say the February 25 meeting is not an attempt to start over on the health care bill but is ostensibly a lobbying and public relations effort.

“I want to come back [after the Presidents Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting — Republicans and Democrats — to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there and move it forward,” Obama told CBS anchor Katie Couric in a Sunday interview.

Obama claimed he wants to "look at the Republican ideas that are out there.”
