More smoke 'n mirrors to make himself look good. After all, none of this has been "his fault" but for the sake of unity he wants to (finally) put a place at the table for the other side.

It doesn't matter that this whole fiasco has been written and voted on by Pelosi, Reid, and company. More than 2000 pages of it while all the suggestions and amendments submitted over that same time by "the other party" were either ignored or didn't even make it to the floor for a vote.

No..it's only now, when he couldn't even get his party to play nice and push the legislation through that he's extending an olive branch but is also neglecting to set any kind of agenda or leadership on how much play he is allowing for change to the bill. This is a photo op for him and I'm sure he'll treat us with shots of the room, showing Republican members who had no part in this bill, getting a bad rap for suggesting changes that Pelosi and Reid won't permit. It'll be the same scenario we just saw with the "Jobs" bill where a bi-partisan team came up with legislation and Reid scrapped it in one fell swoop.

Smoke 'n Mirrors... nothing to see here folks!
