This weeks best quote goes out to Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee.
It is arrogant to imagine that 100 senators are wise enough to reform comprehensively a health care system that constitutes 17 percent of the worldâ€™s largest economy and affects 300 million Americans of disparate backgrounds and circumstances
