Deafening silence from MSM, lies from Dems. Surprised?

Dem Leadership Denies Existence of 35 GOP Alternatives

Not to mention the MSM are deafeningly silent.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) sent out a statement yesterday that was brazen, even under the standards of today’s House leadership.

After the Republicans have introduced at least 35 health care bills ... Hoyer still says that the Republicans don’t have an alternative. His office released the following statement Monday:

“In June, House Republicans pledged to introduce a bill to reform America’s health care system. Now, over 100 days and numerous excuses later, the “Party of no” has not only failed to produce legislation, but they have yet to offer any real solutions or ideas on how to make health care more affordable and accessible to American families.”

.... The Republican Study Committee ... has introduced 35 health care related bills since January. These range from comprehensive bills (H.R. 3400, Empower Patients First Act) to bills that improve or clean up specific aspects of health care, like defensive medicine (H.R. 1086, Help Efficient, Accessible, Low-cost, Timely Healthcare (HEALTH) Act of 2009). ....

.... President Obama ... insisted that he has an open door policy and would meet with anyone who has a good idea. .... Since January, the RSC has asked to meet with President Obama to swap health care ideas. The RSC has submitted four formal requests and at least a dozen staff inquiries, but as of yet there has been no commitment from the administration to grant the RSC a meeting with the president. ....
