    Can't bullshit anyone anymore with "universal coverage", "single-payer" or the uber-cynical "public option" to describe socialized medicine?

    NO PROBLEMA!!!

    Just pull a page from the George Orwell book of semantic duplicity and dub it the "competitive option"!!

    This reminds me of when Barry tried to rename 'the war on terror' to 'overseas contingency operations'.

    Didn't work for him either.

    Same way they tried to re-label "health care reform" to "Health Insurance Reform."

    That didn't even catch on with MSNBC!:rofl:

    Again, "controlling the message" is all these clods really care about and they've been a towering failure at it.

    So basically the Dems are saying is the public is stupid and if we change the name it will pass.

    I can't believe there is one person alive in this country who agrees with the government trying to trick the public.... Could imagine if Republicans tried this????????
