Gibbs Won't Say if Obama Will Read the Health-Care Bill
3:02 PM, Aug 4, 2009 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
At the White House press briefing today, I asked Press Secretary Robert Gibbs if President Obama will read the health-care bill:
A few moments later, Gibbs asked me if I would read the bill. "Yeah, we can read it together," I replied.
"Great, I'm right up the hall to the left," said Gibbs.
I look forward to our health-care bill reading session. Mr. Gibbs is, of course, always welcome to come down to THE WEEKLY STANDARD's offices if that works better for him.
