Spin Alert

Americans have made it clear to Washington that we do not want a "public option" in any healthcare reform.  And, guess what, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been listening.  Does that mean that she's going to drop it?  Not a chance - a government takeover of medicine is a liberal's holy grail.  Pelosi and her pals won't give up to a little thing like public opinion.  Not when she can simply change the terminology, so now she's calling the same old plan for a "consumer option."  Another Democrat is floating the term "competitive option."  (Link to story here.)

But, by whatever name you call it, the idea is the same . . . and it is not a good idea.

Be careful.  The "spin" is getting deep.
