Bob Dole tells Republicans to knock it off.

Former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole says "there will be a signing ceremony" for a health care reform bill either late this year or early next.

But the former presidential candidate says he isn't sure what the bill will say.

Dole, 86, spoke with reporters after an hour-long speech at a health care reform summit sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City.

And he repeatedly blamed "partisanship" for the failure to produce a bill so far.

"Sometimes people fight you just to fight you," he said. "They don't want Reagan to get it, they don't want Obama to get it, so we've got to kill it...

"Health care is one of those things...Now we've got to do something."
