Republicans plan to stress private-sector alternatives to the president's plan

Washington Post, February 24, 2010

Republicans are preparing to use the Feb. 25 White House healthcare summit to sell their own ideas for using the private marketplace to expand coverage and reduce costs, the Washington Post reports. The Republican summit strategy is to portray the Obama plan as radical and ruinously expensive, while reassuring the television audience that the GOP takes the healthcare crisis seriously and is prepared to address it headon, the Post reports.
