I’ll give you a trigger option

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.

    I’ve heard of a couple small businesses recently that are requiring all their employees to read Atlas Shrugged. If everyone would do that, we’d all be better prepared for the coming political apocalypse.

    If these fools succeed, Bernanke will have to print at least another 2 trillion/year forever. Of course our elected officials will carry on with their private health care plan.

    I love it that some Republican senator shouted “You lie!” to Obama today as he carried out some bogus statement after a healthcare speech. How true this guy was but yet he got tons of flack for his outburst. The truth is never appreciated by anyone.
