Daily Show, 55 percent of Americans want the Left Wing Public Optionon October 29, 2009 at 1:11 pm
We have come a long way from Reaganomics with Fox News now declaring that 55% of Americans are Left Wing Radicals!
Jon Stewart also reminds us that the Public Option is already the moderate compromise to the Left Wing desire for a Single Payer system.
There seems to be 4 issues at work that keep moderates in congress from endorsing a public option.
1) Taking big money from big insurance companies (Max Baucus).
2) Radical Republican ideology of unregulated free markets and that taxes / government is all bad unless it supports war, prisons, executions and getting more guns out on the streets. (The Republican Party)
3) Being a snot nosed little hypocritical turncoat creepy crawler (Joe Lieberman)
4) Politicians who fear they will lose the next election because their constituents find a public option worse than Hitler! (Mary Landriau)
The largest factor seems to be #4, whether it’s a Democrat worried about a Republican taking their place or a Republican worried about a more conservative candidate in their primaries.
So why do these politicians constituents – who are middle and lower class voters – so despise a public option?
These KIND OF CONSTITUENTS will have to pay taxes to support a Public Option in some way. And WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE do they perceive as those opting for that Public Option? Duh…
