Dems to Cram 'Public Option' Down Throat of American Public

As far as I'm concerned, the public option was defeated last summer, when conservatives protested Democratic health policy at town hall forums around the nation. Reputable polls continue to show tepid support for a government run health plan, which is why papers like the Washington Post have published bogus polls to help the Democrats deceive the American people.

Now here's this from Breitbart, "
Pelosi: Health Care 'Public Option' Needs New Name" (via Memeorandum):

A government-sponsored "public option" for health care lives, though it may be more attractive to skeptics if it goes by a different moniker, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday.
In an appearance at a Florida senior center, the Democratic leader referred to the so-called public option as "the consumer option." Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., appeared by Pelosi's side and used the term "competitive option."

Both suggested new terminology might get them past any lingering doubts among the public—or consumers or competitors.

"You'll hear everyone say, 'There's got to be a better name for this,'" Pelosi said. "When people think of the public option, public is being misrepresented, that this is being paid for with their public dollars."

Pelosi said that was a misconception and that any taxpayer money used to start up the public option would be repaid. She also said such an option would ultimately drive down government health care costs.

The speaker said the "competitive option" idea emerged during her closed-door roundtable at the Sunrise Senior Center with advocates of seniors and others who work with older populations. Wasserman Schultz suggested the term might be here to stay.
Right. A competitive option? These idiots got nothing!

My, somebody let one of the inmates out of the asylum. Probably what is termed as intelligent dialogue by the Left. Another shining beacon of the drivel that populates empty minds. No wonder it is wearing a mask.

Let's face it, they are eventually going to pass something, even if it's a blank sheet of paper.

They can then add whatever they like later.

I just hope one of the Tea Party signs I saw was prophetic, in that it basically said,"Cram it down our throats in '09, and we are going to shove it up your ass in 2010."

As for our resident 13 yo pud-knocking (until he lost his tweezers) troll, I think his own blog bio says it best:

"useless human mind"
