    Conservatives want serious health debate

    NYT: Conservatives want serious health debate - The New York Times- msnbc.com

    Far from embracing the attacks, many leading conservative health care policy experts said in recent interviews that the dynamic was precluding a more robust real-world debate while making it nearly impossible for them to inject their studied, free-market solutions into the discussions.

    i would welcome rational debate about healthcare reform, as opposed to the irrational insanity that's occuring now.

    Had the libs stayed clear of the public option, this never would have happened.

    Why do libs need the Conservatives? They have the votes. This scapegoating is fooling no one.

    And there's the rub. There is plenty of potential real reform without the public option. There's even some liberal forms of reform without the public option. But the liberal base will not give that up. But somehow they're to be put on a pedestal and praised for their stubborness while conservatives are to be disdained and insulted for theirs.

    But Rev hit the nail on the head.

    Drop the Public option and you'll get the republicans on board and able to get through many of the other liberal reforms. Want to keep the Public Options? Fine, but pass it on your own because they republicans aren't voting for something diametrically opposed to their core principles in an extremely large way.

    they have the possibility of the votes, they don't HAVE the votes. i'm not scapegoating. i believe we've wasted an opportunity to make needed changes because of the misinformation that too many people in this country believe, courtesy of those who want to maintain the status quo.

    politicians are politicians first and foremost, and their main concern is staying in office.

    Then go on a busting spree on those evil insurance companies. I would support that. Problem solved.

    a public option creates needed competition, thus driving prices down.
