Opt Out: the Latest Spitball from the Left-And "This Health Care Discussion Is A Fight Between the Left and the Far Left"
The mysterious ‘opt out’ wrinkle that has just been added to the Dem’s health care hoax is explained in Ann Coulter’s latest column. It is a hoax within a hoax. It is underhanded and dishonest.
“The most important fact about the “opt out” scheme allegedly allowing states to decline government health insurance is that a state can’t “opt out” of paying for it. All 50 states will pay for it. A state legislature can only opt out of allowing its own citizens to receive the benefits of a federal program they’re paying for.
“It’s like a movie theater offering a “money back guarantee” and then explaining, you don’t get your money back, but you don’t have to stay and watch the movie if you don’t like it. That’s not what most people are thinking when they hear the words “opt out.” The term more likely to come to mind is “scam.”"
It appears that they think they can ignore the will of the majority without much problem if they increase the amount of misdirection, deception and smoke and mirrors as the opposition increases. And while they are at it they also abuse the language and the intelligence of the voters.
The video does not deal with opt out but points out the foolishness of a party with a filibuster-proof majority blaming their problems on the powerless minority. How hard is it to get an elected official to accept responsibility for anything?
I found the video at Nice Deb.
