Congressman Shadegg believes health insurance companies should have to
compete for our business as individual consumers. Forcing them to
compete, even through a public option, would be better than an
individual mandate which will not work.
Now that that ship’s sailed, now that anything resembling public health care has been characterized as a nonstop Nazi death panel disco party, now that it’s basically an individual mandate or nothing, now he’s all for what six months ago he would have characterized as the anti-christ. Now he’s all about it. Nice. Way to show up on time to shoot the wounded. Way to get there. Way to be.
For what it’s worth, I agree with him. Doesn’t mean he’s not being a disingenuous nitwit.
