Senator Mike Enzi, part of the "gang of six" that includes Olympia Snowe is assuring conservatives that his participation in reform negotiations is delaying health care reform.
"If I hadn't been involved in this process as long as I have and to the depth as I have, you would already have national health care," he said.
Thanks a lot; so much for working for the common good and in good faith.
We call upon Senator Olympia Snowe to publicly reject and disavow Senator Enzi's remarks. We urge her to go far beyond the typical characterization of "unfortunate remarks", et cetera and establish a renewed commitment to consensus negotiation that considers citizen needs first and does not dismiss a robust pubic option out of hand.
