Surprise! GOP against Obama proposal

From NBC's Amna Nawaz
House Republicans made clear their opposition to current healthcare reform proposals in a news conference this morning.

Drawing a clear line in the sand, Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) announced that he and his colleagues "will seize every opportunity on the floor and the airways" before Thursday's summit to get out the details of their own healthcare ideas (available at healthcare.gop.gov), and "will continue to oppose any effort to use the so-called summit as a media preamble to forcing through ObamaCare 2.0."

Republicans repeatedly stated their wish to "scrap" the current proposals, "hit the reset button," and "start over" on healthcare reform -- despite President Obama's praising of some Republican ideas in the proposal.

House Republicans are also demanding that their Democratic counterparts start treating them like "legitimate" partners, and "not obstacles to be overcome."
