11. But, Olympia, your colleague Kent Conrad just admitted that co-ops won't drive down costs! WTF!!?
Edited on Fri Aug-21-09 03:15 PM by seafan
Olympia Snowe now is claiming that the Gang of Six on the Senate Finance Committee have never put a public option on the table; instead, they are strongly considering co-ops, because of fiscal concerns?? WTF??!!



Heeeerrre's Kent!



August 18, 2009:


ROBERTS: What would (co-ops) do to reduce costs? Because that is one of the central issues of health care reform.

CONRAD: Well, the important thing is theyd provide more competition. Beyond that, I think its very important not to over-promise here. <...>

ROBERTS: So nothing really in driving down the costs of service then?

CONRAD: Uhhh, no. If you believe competition helps drive down costs, then they would certainly contribute to holding down costs.





This garden path sure is nice. Why won't you annoying liberals just skip along, now.


:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:
