For those here who insist that "compromise & moderation" is the way forward,

I make this pledge:

I will seek the Middle Ground with every Republican who has demonstrated the ability to "compromise" by voting FOR the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).

Those Republicans have stepped forward and proved that their primary concern is the Good of the American People and not petty partisan politics. They have demonstrated that they are bargaining in Good Faith
by placing the health of The Working Class and The Poor above Partisan Politics.


Please help me out by providing a LIST of those Republicans who have demonstrated this capacity for Compromise and Negotiating in Good Faith so that I can step forward and meet them in the middle.

Thank You.

3. Seems like a good place to start.

Better send this idea off to your congress-people and the whitehouse just in case they can't see the starting line.

5. Exactly. The claim that Rs and Ds are the same

is disproven by voting records.

7. Has Obama said this?... Nope.

WE need to give him this message before it is too late.

8. Obama also got 0 republican votes for the stimulus package, although that does not

lend itself quite as well to the current argument, perhaps, as the obamacare vote does

(zero votes after Obama included worthless tax cuts per republican requests)

9. You are pissing into the wind with some here who insist that we bend our knees.

Even though the mandate is there and we must roll back the repuke machine.
