Obama in July:
“I am pleased by the progress we’re making on health care reform and still believe, as I’ve said before, that one of the best ways to bring down costs, provide more choices and assure quality is a public option that will force the insurance companies to compete and keep them honest,” Obama said in July.
Obama in August:
“All I’m saying is, though, that the public option, whether we have it or we don’t have it, is not the entirety of health care reform,” Obama said at a town hall meeting in Grand Junction, Colo. “This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it.”
Wonder what he’ll be saying next month? If it is something along the lines of “And as a lawyer I’m opposed to the outrageous lawsuits that are driving up healthcare costs and I will pursue tort reform” – that would be super!
