Why doesn't congress scrap current health-care & introduce are bill a new one w/ just points of agreement?

During the 2010 health-care summit President Obama went over a whole list of reforms that both Democrats and Republicans supported. Why don't they scrap the current bill and introduce a new bill that step by step introduced ONLY the reforms that a majority of both parties agree on. I'm talking about things like the ability to buy health insurance over state lines, health insurance fraud, TORT reform. Things that presented on their own would pass easily. The way those things are implemented should be whats being debated. At the same time they could promise in writing that the next few bills presented to the congress would be dedicated and reserved for those controversial partisan topics that would not pass easily. Here I'm talking about controversial issues like the public option, and fines for people not buying health insurance. Does everything have to be done at once and behind closed doors? Why reform be done in stages with transparency?

    Insurance crossing state lines won't fix anything. The companies would just merge with each other and we would have the same problems just on a national level.

    Personally the only tort reform I would accept would have to include something that actually punishes bad doctors .. like if they make to many mistakes they lose their license. As things are now... they make a mistake .. big deal the insurance company pays and the doctor pays slightly higher rates. Sorry but when a doctor is careless people lose out big time.

    Think about this... if Micheal Jackson wasn't famous would his doctor have been in as much trouble? The doctor was greedy and careless ... resulting in a death. Right now a lawsuit is our only defense, take that away and you need to put something in its place.

    Insurance fraud prevention ... that is about the only point on the list that would be helpful... so what do you have in mind? Also remember that the biggest insurance frauds are done by hospitals and doctors.
