When the LIE is just not good enough...

... make it even more deceptive!
but i must say that this one takes the cake -- "competitive option"? how stupid do these clowns think we are?
how is it possible for any private market to compete with the federal government which has a seemingly endless supply of money? (money that belongs to We the People and also to our children for generations to come.)
perhaps a large faction of Americans have been so deceived by their public education indoctrination to go on thinking that Pelosi is correct in saying that taxpayers won't foot the bill for socialized health care, but even the most hardcore Neo-Libs will generally buckle when confronted with the truth of the matter that we all must share in such a burden.
therefore, right in step with previous such deceptive titles of Amerikan legislation as the USA PATRIOT ACT, No Child Left Behind, and Pick-Your-War-On-Anything-Having-No-Victory-Conditions, i presume We the People should simply take it as granted that whatever bills submitted for Congressional review mean exactly opposite as what their titles suggest.
thank you, all you bureaucrats for being so predictable!

Pelosi: Health care 'public option' needs new name

(AP) – 56 minutes ago

SUNRISE, Fla. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says a government-sponsored public option for health care lives. But it may be going by a different name.

In an appearance at a Florida senior center Monday, the Democratic leader referred to the so-called public option as "the consumer option." Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, appeared by Pelosi's side and used the term "competitive option."

Both suggested a new moniker might get them past any lingering doubts among the public, consumers and competitors.

Pelosi says the term has been misrepresented and creates the impression that taxpayers will foot the bill for health care. Wasserman Schultz says she expects the speaker to give the new wording a test drive when she returns to Washington.
