Campaign season?

Given the unknowns of the health care bill, this seems like a decent proposition:
In an effort to engage the American people in the health care debate, Ryan noted,

"We all want to fix what's broken in health care, but we need to get it right. Let’s get input from our employers – the constituents we represent – before we’re forced to vote on a thousand-page, trillion-dollar bill that will exacerbate our fiscal crisis, impose crushing new taxes on all Americans, and violate the President’s claim: ‘If you like what you’ve got, you can keep it.’ After hearing from those we serve next month, we can come back with a renewed commitment to advance patient-centered, fiscally-responsible health care reform."

(Yes, that's me quoting a press release -- but that doesn't take away from the quality of the idea.)
