The chutzpah of Harry Reid

The man is really something else. Really something else. He still doesn’t have a health care bill to show the American people, but he’s whining that Republicans don’t have sufficiently “comprehensive” alternatives of their own — when, in fact, Republicans have had plenty of legislative proposals on the table. The chutzpah of Harry Reid knows no bounds:

As you also know, we are now working to take these publicly-available provisions and meld them together into a single bill. Apart from my decision to include a public option from which states may opt out, no final decisions have been made – and none can be made until we get more information about how CBO would score different combinations. In other words, there is no bill to release publicly – it does not exist.

… assure you that I will make the legislation available to the full Senate and the American people prior to its consideration. There will be ample opportunity to examine and evaluate its provisions. Furthermore, if we are able to overcome your opposition to permitting the Senate to even debate this important legislation, all members will have the opportunity to offer amendments. I have no intention of rushing this process or blocking senators from offering alternatives.

While the two health care reform plans that are serving as the main building blocks for the merged bill have been publicly available for quite some time, I would note that the Republican leadership’s health care plan remains a secret, unless perhaps it does not exist.

Via Sean Hackbarth, here is Sen. Judd Gregg’s Coverage, Prevention and Reform plan.

And here is Sen. Jim Demint’s Health Care Freedom Plan.

And here is Sen. Bob Bennett’s Healthy Americans Act.

And here is the Patients’ Choice Act of Sens. Coburn and Burr and Reps. Ryan and Nunes.

Dingy Harry can’t stop projecting.
