Mandate, Public Option Go Together Like a Horse and Carriage
No great surprise to wake up on Sunday morning to find that President Obama has thrown a huge portion of his base supporters under the bus again. He defends the mandate that every American carry health insurance or face a fine. He dances around the issue of the dreaded “tax increases” while advocating what amounts to a windfall of new profits for health insurance companies. He provides one more point for the opposition by demonizing those without insurance while ignoring the real culprit, profit. He makes the case for the other side by once again drawing the ridiculous parallel between auto insurance and health insurance!
It is not too difficult for this ex-supporter of the president to understand who is driving the bus!
