Details on Healthcare Summit Out

The whitehouse this afternoon gave out a few details about the h/c “summit” coming up on 2/25/10.
The details come in the form of a letter that’s gone out to everyone invited to the party.

Here’s a couple of snippets in case your interested:

“There have been hundreds of hours of committee hearings and mark-ups in both the House of Representatives and Senate, with nearly all of those sessions televised on C-SPAN. “

” The President will then open and moderate discussion on four critical topics: insurance reforms, cost containment, expanding coverage, and the impact health reform legislation will have on deficit reduction.”

“Since this meeting will be most productive if information is widely available before the meeting, we will post online the text of a proposed health insurance reform package. “

“It is the President’s hope that the Republican congressional leadership will also put forward their own comprehensive bill to achieve those goals and make it available online as well. “

Anyway, if you’re in need of bathroom reading here’s the full letter from the whitehouse site.
