PITCH PERFECT...:

Republicans hit airwaves to push for restarting the health-care process (Alex Pappas, 1/24/10, The Daily Caller)

“I don’t know one Republican who does not want health care reform,” Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch told John King on CNN’s State of the Union, arguing that Republicans “weren’t even involved in this process.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican’s minority leader, said on NBC’s Meet the Press that last week’s special election in Massachusetts, where Republican Scott Brown was victorious, sent a message that people want legislators to “stop and start over” the health reform process.

Republican Sen. John McCain, on CBS’ Face the Nation, said that Republicans would be willing to start the process again because “there are many things we can do,” to meet common ground with Democrats, like malpractice reform and transportability of coverage across state lines.


...but they'll need to start banging on the details in the Spring.
