We cannot continue to use the term "public option", when referring to obama's health care plan.

We MUST call it what it is: The "GOVERNMENT Option".


It has NOTHING to do with the "public". It is for the government's benefit, not the public's.

The "Government Option"

Frank Luntz says that "public option" polls so-so/mildly well, whereas the public expresses majority disapproval of a "government option."

And he says we've conceded a lot of rhetorical ground by agreeing to call it by the president's focus-group tested formulation.

So I'll be calling it the "government option" from now on.

The co-op plan is just a watered down plan of the public option (government plan). The government will control it and it will eventually tweaked to turn into a single payer/ government plan. I hope the Repubs do not fall for this crap.

Yeps...That "co-op" stuff will be run by the government.
Folks shouldn't believe it will be any different than the currently talked-about "government" option.
