They Cannot Brain, They Have The Dumb

All of the Republican leaders and punditry and a whole bunch of misinformed, lied-to people are railing against the Dreaded Public Option, the notion of government-run health care (which is not actually government-run health care, but a way for the government to pay for health care rather than the usurious^3 rates we pay for private insurance now, if they don't decline or cancel it out from under us). It will cost too much to have some competition for the private sector, which functions marvelously under the Glorious Free Market unless they are up against something not-for-profit, in which case they are helpless and in imminent danger of losing their big-ass bonuses.

Meanwhile, the H1N1 (Swine Flu) shots start in October. Not administered by the private sector. Publicly financed, in fact.

How is that not government-run health care, guys? And why aren't any of you saying Boo about that?

Just sayin'.
