Ridiculous claims and argumentation based on the lack of reason continues to hamper the debate on health care reform in the United States. As Paul Krugman (see link on the side) puts it, "the debate over the public option has... been depressing in its inanity."
Let me give you prime example of this. Forget about forced abortions and euthanasia. When Democratic senator Ben Nelson ominously warns that "if the option were available, Americans would choose it over private insurance" clearly considering the choice of the American people (who he represents) as a bad thing, its hard not to be depressed.
As Upton Sinclair said "“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depend upon his not understanding it."
Replace the word salary with campaign contributions and its very clear that the hysterical and fanatical opposition to the public option is not going to end anytime soon.
