Speaking with GOP lawmakers today President Obama scolded them to their faces before beginning a question and answer session (see video below).

A sometimes visibly irritated and defiant President Obama claimed his Health Care Reform plan was “pretty centrist” and told lawmakers that they were not sent to Washington to engage in some sort of “steel cage match.” The exchange was sometimes contentious, and the President’s face often showed open contempt and disdain.

Some other significant takeaways from the meeting:

  • The President implied that the GOP had not been shut out of the process.
  • Representative Mike Pence (R-IN) claimed today’s GOP proposal included the ideas that the President and Speaker Pelosi have been ignoring for months.
  • The President said  if you claim Health Care Reform is a big Government takeover you don’t have a lot of room to negotiate with him.
  • The President claimed the GOP framed the Democrat Health Care Plan as some sort of “Bolshevik plot”.
  • The President said he supported increases in nuclear energy.
