Blanking Out

In the run-up to the healthcare summit next week, the White House announced that it will post the proposed healthcare bill on the web this week.

This was in response to the demand from House Minority John Boehner (R-OH) put out back on February 8:

If the President intends to present any kind of legislative proposal at this discussion, will he make it available to members of Congress and the American people at least 72 hours beforehand?

Now Mr. Boehner is demanding that President Obama start off with a “clean sheet of paper.”
