Bill Nelson: Public Option Supporters "Don't Have a Clue"
Facing criticism that his mind has been elsewhere, Sen. Bill Nelson has finally given his talk about Chinese drywall, snakes, space, and Chinese snakes in space a rest to address the nationally pressing concern of health reform.
Nelson said most of the public option advocates "don't have a clue" about what it would take to create such a plan.
"The whole thing is so complicated you can't expect them to understand."
"If a co-op serves the same purpose, what's the big deal?" Nelson added.
I suspect that the 63 percent of doctors who support a public option indeed have a clue, probably more so than Nelson. Plus, it doesn't seem any more likely that most people have much of a clue what a health-care co-op is. The AP has a rundown on the issue here.
