Hey Nancy! Push It Through!!

Politico reports that QueenNancy intends to jam single-payer ("public option" yadayadayadya) through, no matter the Blue Dogs.

Please DO IT, Nancy!!

A top-to-bottom, government-run health care system is clearly not popular with 2010 voters. Fifty-eight percent of voters in states with competitive 2010 Senate races oppose the creation of a government-run health care system, or "single-payer" system, where the federal government pays for and provides health care for all Americans. Fifty-five percent of voters in competitive 2010 House districts oppose a "single-payer" system.

Less popular with 2010 voters is a key provision in Sen. Max Baucus', D-Mont., recently unveiled health care bill that would require all Americans to purchase health insurance or face a hefty fine. A clear majority of voters in competitive Senate races (68 percent) oppose such a provision, as do 70 percent of voters in competitive House races

Do the Rahm-a-Jamma! Push! Slam! Wrestle!! Get it passed!

And then bend over and kiss your ass goodbye as the (D) becomes a minority party in Congress for the next 4? 8? 12? years!

The public option is not single payer.

Any Republican who tries to claim equivalence is a liar, is deliberately prevaricating on a matter that isn't even ambiguous.

For that matter, so are you.

And the national debt doesn't have to be repaid. And tax dollars won't cover voluntary abortions.

And seashells and balloons shall replace the Stars and Stripes.

Non sequiturs.

A public insurance option is not single payer. When you say that it is, you lie. That is the beginning, middle, and end of that conversation, no matter how much you jump up and down and scream "look over there!" You're lying, bearing false witness, not telling the truth, prevaricating, knowingly spouting talking-point bullshit of a very high grade. Open and shut.
