    Harry Reid backs a public option that allows states to back out of the public option after one year.

    Reid Backs Health Public Option With State Opt-Out - Yahoo! News

    The trojan horse here is that if a state like Texas has the public option for one year, people are going to get it! So let's say 500,000 people have the public option in Texas in one year and Rick Perry decides to abandon it after one year -- the gov. just cost 500,000 people, i.e. 1% of the vote, their health insurance.

    Sorry, but this is politics and it doesn't belong in here. Either grow a fucking set and put the public option in or don't have it in there. This "pull out" method works just as well as the one Iraq worked in 2004.

    You don't begin to understnd the gamble in this do you David? No, of course not you aren't that smart.

    What REid is willing to gamble on is that most business -especially small business are going to shift as many of their people as possible over to the public option as quick as they can for simple cost savings. And that after a year there will be a hell of a lot more than 1% of the voters stuck with a public option.
    In short the asshole istrying to have his cake - that is minimize the damage the public option is doing to his reelection chances -quite severe at the moment - and still have one out there so that he can still keep the far left loons like you on board.

    The "pull out" method is how I became a mom.

    Hell man the only thing you approach right on is the war against the fundmentalist Islamic goons. Everything else you tilt so far left I'm suprise you don't have to roll in order to move.

    More like poison pill Harry.

    He knows the cynically dubbed "public option" won't fly with enough Senators to let this piece of crap pass.

    He's obviously up to something.

    Please, provide evidence with links to my postings that show my views are far left. And by far left, I would assume you mean socialist or Marxist.

    This is gonna be great...

    Not true at all. They'll get enough Dems on board to pass it. And thank God for that -- the insurance company is killing my mother right now because they refuse to approve a pill that they don't think is necessary, yet my doctor says is vital for her. The pill is $25/pill WITH insurance and it's very important for a severe infection she has. It's hundreds of dollars per pill without insurance.

    You're lying to us David; health insurance companies never deny people the healthcare they need if they pay for it.

    Amen to that brother.

    Anyone who has had a relative with a serious illness will learn what a scam health insurance is.
