Sen. Chris Dodd called for “a breather” on health care for a month to six weeks.
Sen. Kent Conrad said, “People are sending us a loud and clear message that the package that’s there now is not acceptable to them. You know, and whether that’s because they don’t fully understand what’s in the package, as complex as it is, the fact is, you know, we’ve got to listen to the people that we represent…We’ve got to recalibrate.”
Rep. John Dingell, meanwhile, warned that, “”There is only a limited amount of time to address this.”
And President Obama evidently doesn’t get what all the fuss is about, saying at a town hall meeting today that, “after the Massachusetts election people in Washington were all in a tizzy trying to figure out what this means for health reform.”
