Bill O’Reilly – In Favor of the Public Option
I”m a bit shocked to say that I’m starting to cozy up to Bill O, a bit. Not that I agree with his politics (in general), I’m just finding him a lot more agreeable lately than I have in the past. Personally, I think it’s because I now have Glenn Beck to compare him to, so he is now the lesser of two evils.
The Huffington Post (that really needs to watch their celebrity blogger bullshit), has posted a little blurb saying that Bill O’Reilly actually supports the “Government Option” in health care. His exact words, “if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks”, which sounds quite sound to me.
The bill before Congress now is not a bill for a Canadian style Universal Health care like the TEA baggers seem to thing. It is merely supply an option that people can sign up for if it proves advantageous (if, for example, their employer offers a poor insurance plan, or if it’s too expensive, etc), and this is supposed to help provide the competition that is virtually non-existent today.
