This seems significant. After months of synchronized bleating about the evils of (and how Americans will NEVER accept) socialism, it must really fry Jonah and Rich’s shorts over at The National Revue And Sideshow to learn that despite all of their concerted windbaggery, Americans still don’t exactly fear and loathe a “public option” to compete with the private insurers in the health care market.
Go figure. 😉
As the Times put it in the article:
The poll found that most Americans would be willing to pay higher taxes so everyone could have health insurance and that they said the government could do a better job of holding down health-care costs than the private sector.
That has simply GOT to suuuuck, if you’re a rock-ribbed comservatarian commentator who’s spent the last several months trying to pretend/convince themselves and/or the public that no one could possibly want such a thing.
