    ROTF! This should play well!

    McCain on banking and health - Paul Krugman - Op-Ed Columnist - New York Times Blog


    Here’s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:

    Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.

    So McCain, who now poses as the scourge of Wall Street, was praising financial deregulation like 10 seconds ago — and promising that if we marketize health care, it will perform as well as the financial industry!

    He doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. That's the way it has been operating for many years.

    It's like giving MSAs as a solution to someone who doesn't have a job.

    We need to get the government out of the markets. They caused the Great Depression and they caused the mess we're in now. Bloated governments are always bad for the average taxpayer.

    You are like an outdated machine whose progarming is stuck spewing out yesterday's propaganda. Rush , Hannity and Bill-O will have to develop a new line of bull shit to fill your head with

    So you still want Government health care? I use my private insurance exclusively. I'm a vet and I never use the VA for reasons that should be obvious to everyone. Government health care will be the same as the banking mess.
    How is that government Social Security going for ya'? Goin' broke and will institute some sort of "means testing" to deny you your benefits when you retire.
    How's that Medicare and Medicaid doin'? Goin' broke by allowing everyone to get in on it including illegal aliens.
    Even with the markets in total meltdown mode I would still trust my money and investments to the open market over some federally regulated or guaranteed institution. The private sector has a much better record of returns that the government does.

    SS, Medicare and the VA are fine. They are not going broke at all

    That is so true, the conservative echo chamber needs new echos, after a while the same old nonsense gets old. But then Sarah Palin lies about the bridge to nowhere over and over again and you think maybe aliens have taken over their bodies. ;)
