Single payer advocate Conyers now invited to Obama's health care "summit"

Google. After Downing Street, interestingly.

So now, call 'em again and ask why not PNHP? Or Health Care Now? Heck, not even HCAN't? What's wrong with these people? Why can't ordinary citizens get a seat at the table?

The White House (202) 456-1414 or (202) 456-1111. Remember, if you've got a rotary phone, you always get to soeak to a human!

I keep seeing this pattern: Obama announces a "summit" or meeting with some really scary figures being invited and no liberal voice, followed by a backlash and an eventual invitation to some reasonable voices. This results in applause from the left and mixed results. Obama could be worse, IMO, but the crumbs he seems to be throwing to us are still crumbs with an awful lot of work to get those crumbs. It worries me that we have to work so hard to force Obama's hand on some stuff that should be obvious. Since we get all Sirota* at the crumbs, how are we going to have enough influence to get some entrees?

I don't see anybody going Sirota.

This is a good thing. It was wrong that we had to do it. Much hard work lies ahead.

No paper towels needed....

I'm with lambert, yeah we are happy we won this round, but no one at Corrente appears to be dreamy eyed about this
