Turns out the Democrats actually did what I hoped for and that's that they went through the Democratic bills and effectively showed that the Republicans agreed with most of what is in each part of the bill but they just want to do things THEIR way. It wasn't as aggressive as I might have liked but I think anybody who was truly open minded and watched the summit today had to come away thinking, "if they agree on so much in the bills, why are Republicans fighting so hard against it?". They would also notice that the Republicans didn't offer even one new idea on health care reform (unless you count Tom Coburn's undercover Medicare patients) that either wasn't already in the bill or hadn't already been considered.
At this point all that is left is to PASS THE DAMN BILL!
