  •  If Obama heeds Jarett we can see the problem. (0+ / 0-)

    Hard to tell if Jarret is defending Obama or putting out what she advises Obama.

    Her advice per the interview is all about process and nothing about results.  The entire point of health care reform is to reform health care based upon the metrics of cost, coverage and result none of which were on Jarret's mind.  Jarret is not thinking of solving a specific problem.

    "We are trying to reach them."  No we are trying to fix the problems. That's what government and leadership is about not "reaching" people who are the cause of the problem and not only have no interest in fixing the problem have a vested interest (campaign money from special interests) in preventing fixing the problems.

    As Jarret "reaches" for a Pyrrhic victory of passing a pointless but bipartisan bill, US loses $800B per year and 5,000 people die needlessly.
