I’ll give you a trigger option: demolish Washington and return power to the people and the local governments where it belongs.
“Any real change requires the inclusion of a strong public option to promote competition and bring down costs,” she said in a news release. “If a vigorous public option is not included, it would be a major victory for the health insurance industry.”
Will someone remind me which government program has ever brought down costs and since when bringing in a monopoly power has increased competition?
“We recommend that after about five years, if the insurance companies don’t clean up their acts, then there’s sort of a trigger where certain things happen, and we think that’s a step in the right direction,” said former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, a Republican from Kansas.
What is the “trigger option?” It is a way for politicians to kick the football of responsibility off their court. It is a way to delay, but ensure passage of socialized medicine. And it is apparently a way for Bob Dole to show why he was soundly defeated in 96.
How about this trigger option: If Washington doesn’t clean up their act, reduce their costs, reduce their burden on Americans we turn the trigger on Washington. I call THAT a step in the right direction. And if a vigorous cutback on Washington isn’t included, it would be a major victory for fat cat Congressman.
