Hopes Rise for Compromise at Healthcare Summit

Sunday, 21 Feb 2010 12:46 PM

Two governors are hoping Democrats and Republican can work out a compromise on a health care — starting the big meeting Thursday that President Barack Obama has with members of Congress.

GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California says if Washington lawmakers really want to serve the public, they'll try to find "that sweet spot" of agreement.

A Democratic governor, Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania, says a compromise will mean Republicans giving the OK to some Democratic ideas and Democrats willing to take on some GOP ideas.

As Rendell puts it, "We may not love your ideas, but we'll take them."

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says he'll probably attend the meeting and hopes it won't be a waste of time.

The governors spoke on ABC's "This Week." McConnell was on "Fox News Sunday."
