The American people are turning on socialized healthcare. Indeed, the push to socialize healthcare and use it as a vehicle to put the American people in eternal debt has done the impossible – brought the conservative movement from near-death back to national political viability and power, inside of a year.
Healthcare may or may not turn out to be the epic miscalculation that it was for Bill Clinton, when it sparked the conservative onslaught in 1994. I’m gonna hold out for “may”, of course, and do my best to make it a “will”.
And we had a good sign in that direction yesterday; the Dems are P trying to snooker the American people (emphasis added by me):
In an appearance at a Florida senior center, the Democratic leader referred to the so-called public option as “the consumer option.” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., appeared by Pelosi’s side and used the term “competitive option.”
Both suggested new terminology might get them past any lingering doubts among the public—or consumers or competitors.
“You’ll hear everyone say, ‘There’s got to be a better name for this,'” Pelosi said. “When people think of the public option, public is being misrepresented, that this is being paid for with their public dollars.”
So our tax dollars – notwithstanding the longtime Democrat meme that everything we earn belongs to the government before it belongs to us – are not public, now?
Wow. Maybe those “the income tax is unconstitutional” people have a point!
And since it’s my money, then Nan Pelosi and her hamsters in Washington should have no control over how I spend it, right?
