After the President’s address to Congress and the Nation in which he called for an end to the “bickering” and “games” in the effort to reform health care, Republicans seem to be changing their tune to sing the praises of bipartisanship. In recent days, some Congressional Republicans have pushed the rhetoric even further, stating that they believe agreement currently exists on 80 percent of what has been proposed. The question is, if Republicans are truly committed to bipartisanship as they say, will they come to the table to forge a bipartisan bill or will they continue to undermine efforts to find common ground as they have done throughout this debate?
