It’s another indication that the GOP is really serious about playing a substantive role in the health care debate. A week after promising to bring “common-sense solutions that promote competition and innovation,” in health care, Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) — who leads the Republican study group on health reform — told Congressional Quarterly that the GOP should apply frat boy pep rally cheers from the ’08 campaign to the health care debate:
If we could get the same kind of engagement on health care from our conference that we got on energy last year, that in and of itself would be a great success.
So what does this mean exactly? The goals here is to dumb down the debate to a few catchy buzz words (we’re accepting suggestions in the comments sections) that can then be regurgitated by Republican Congressmen on cable news and put to music. It’s not about slogans, it’s about solutions.
