Wednesday, 24 Feb 2010 01:30 PM


The House Republican leader has made his picks for President Barack Obama's health care summit.

Rep. John Boehner of Ohio on Wednesday tapped Charles Boustany of Louisiana, a surgeon; Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.

Ryan recently introduced legislation to give future Medicare beneficiaries vouchers to buy private health plans and to give future Social Security beneficiaries the option of investing some of their Social Security money in private accounts.

The White House had invited 21 leaders and top committee members to the event. It also said the four House and Senate leaders could choose four members each. Boehner was the last to announce his choices.
