....not in the realm of healthcare.
Evan Bayh told Fox News yesterday morning that he is "agnostic" when it comes to healthcare.
Here's the quote:
WALLACE: But the one big concern a lot of the private sector has is the president, in his program, has as a — supposedly as a provider of last resort a government program, and the concern is they’ll be able to do it so much more cheaply, or at least in terms of the cost, that everybody will end up in the government program.
BAYH: Well, it’s a debate we need to have, Chris. And I’m agnostic on that as we sit here this morning.
I'm so confused. Obviously the private sector is going to be concerned that the govt could provide healthcare at a much cheaper cost. But, isn't that a good thing? Don't we want to lower costs? I mean, I can see why private sector wouldn't like this... but a sitting Senator?? After all, entitlement costs are skyrocketing... Why on EARTH would we want to do something to lower them. When is Evan Bayh being re-elected?
But here is my BIGGEST thing... I am begging someone to ask this of people who oppose the president's plan..... IF GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSURANCE IS SOOOO AWFUL, WHY DO YOU GUYS (Senators, Reps, Governors, etc.) NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT YOUR OWN INSURANCE?
If it so crazy to think of providing this option to citizens, why don't you guys purchase your own private insurance?....
