Boehner slams healthcare summit

At The Hill:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) slammed President Obama's proposed bipartisan healthcare summit today, arguing it will be more akin to political theater than true bipartisanship.

"A productive bipartisan discussion should begin with a clean sheet of paper," Boehner said in a statement. "We now know that instead of starting the 'bipartisan' health care 'summit' on Feb. 25 with a clean sheet of paper, the president and his party intend to arrive with a new bill written behind closed doors exclusively by Democrats-- a backroom deal that will transform one-sixth of our nation's economy and affect every family and small business in America."
