Obama health plan is clear as mud

  • Follow Letters

Only 21st-century American politicians could come up with a convoluted con like "opting out of an option." Or "opting out of a public option."

First, the "public" part is left undefined -- thus, while it sounds like the public gets a choice, what it really means is the public gets no choice, but the government (calling itself "public") gets the option, which means the people get no choice at all, which could be defined as slavery.

Then the "option" part. And the "opting" part. Goodness, where to begin figuring out such a scam? An option is defined as a choice or alternative. So, it's a choice without a choice, since the "public" already has been defined as a few government people and not individual American citizens.

Then the choice to "opt out." That could be written as "an option to not option or to option." Is anybody sure what it means? Clearly, it's not clear at all. And that's what Obama and his goons and henchmen in Congress like best -- the opposite of clarity -- while they keep on screaming how "open and transparent" they are.

What a bloody mess! And the mess is "leading" us?

My guess is the recent elections in NJ and Virginia will have a lot of Dems jumping off the Obamacare wagon like rats off a sinking ship. Have a little faith Bill, all isn't lost.

The "opting out of the

The "opting out of the government option" clause is typical left wing naming. Not only are the parameters listed to qualify to "opt out" impossible to meet, but "opting out" means you won't have to participate in the option, however, you will still have to pay for the option. The convoluted "option" typifies everything this administration and congress stands for. What a horrible mistake. Vote in 2010 and 2012 to begin recovering.

It is amazing to me that some

It is amazing to me that some people defend Obama no matter what says or does because he is black .Some ignorant people support Obama for no other reason and know nothing about his beliefs.. Intelligent people do not vote for a person based on their skin color.He is destroying our country piece by piece.Grouse you are the one who doesn't understand what Obama is doing. He is a slick talking lying socialist.He is a Muslim trying to pretend he's not.Everyone who voted for him should be kicking themselves for being duped.
