We've Won The Health Care Debate.
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 12:48 PM by berni_mccoy
Bill O'Reilly: "But you know, I want that, Ms. Owcharenko. I want that. I want, not for personally for me, but for working Americans, to have a option, that if they dont like their health insurance, if its too expensive, they cant afford it, if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks."

Full context and transcript here: http://www.dailykostv.com/w/002154 /

If Bill O'Reilly is talking this way, then we have truly won the debate. He is saying that the Public Option is good. The rest of the debate is truly going to be on the details on how to make it happen.

2. It's only when the Bill is signed by Obama that it's REAL. But for now, this will soften opposition

and allow us to pass a Bill with a Public Option. The Debate is over.

4. On the contrary. What Bill O sells, I ain't buying.
This raises my suspicions, if anything.

8. I think what gives is Beck's Insanity. I'm smelling a great divide growing at Fox, and probably
in the GOP as well.

9. I think his version of a public option is subsidized private insurance for
the poor. This would be another corporate raid of our Treasury. We need Medicare to be offered as the public option.
