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!
