I really would have thought they were part of the Empire

The Republicans have been doing everything in their power to stop the healthcare reform this country badly needs. They have explicitly admitted that they're not interested in other ideas or a different approach, they're really interested in making the President and the Democrats fail for their own political gain. Despite this knowledge, the Democrats have bent over backwards at times to accommodate the Republicans and have been repeatedly cock-blocked.

In an effort to kick-start the process, President Obama has invited the Congress to a fully-televised, live conference in late February to discuss healthcare options. Fox News, knowing that the Republicans have no actual ideas (other than tort reform) decided to get all Admiral Ackbar and warn the Republicans.

The only way it can really be a trap is if you have no actual ideas to contribute. If you go in good faith with reasonable ideas in a spirit of compromise and providing for the American people, how can meeting with the President and other Congressional leaders be a trap?
