Here's the governor's schedule for the day from D.C. as he talks health care
(and stimulus money with Biden):
8am - Breakfast with Rep.Welch
9am - Minority Leader Boehner/House GOP Conference
10:15 - Speaker Pelosi
12:30 - VP Biden
1 - Sec. Sebelius, Larry Summers, Valerie Jarrett, Nancy-Ann DeParle
2 - President Obama
He indicated yesterday he would be meeting with Welch, with whom he worked on creating Vermont's Catamount Health Plan and who is now on a committee crafting the federal health care legislation. But you'll note that he's not going anywhere near Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is on a committee crafting the health care bill in the Senate. Safe to say their ideas about who should run health care are oceans apart while his and Welch's ideas are a mere stream apart.
Anybody care to weigh in on how likely this attempt at health care reform is to succeed?
