Pelosi Unloads On "Immoral" Insurance Companies
— DrewM

I love Thursdays because that means it is time for Speaker Botox's weekly press conference! Anytime she is the plastic and expressionless face of an issue, good things happen.

"The public option -- that's where the insurance companies are making their attacks -- it's almost immoral what they are doing, " said Pelosi, addressing reporters outside of her office a few minutes ago.

"Of course, they've been immoral all along," she added. "They are the villains in this, they have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening and the public has to know.. They have had a good thing going for a long time at the expense of the American people and the health of our country."

"This is the fight of our lives," she added.

Yeah, people bitch out their health insurance and the health care system but most don't want the government to mess with what they have.

"Something needs to be done, especially to help the kids and the elderly," said Williams, 48, who works for the school district in Forsyth County, Ga. "But if the reforms affect the insurance I have now, I would have a deep issue with it."

Proposals to change the system must allay concerns like Williams's, which seem to have increased since the debate began.

"It's a huge barrier," said Robert J. Blendon, a professor of health-care policy and political analysis at Harvard University. He cited a Washington Post-ABC News poll of 1,001 adults in June that found that 83 percent were either "somewhat" or "very" satisfied with the care they receive and 81 percent felt the same way about their insurance. "These people have something to lose. If they think reform is going to actually make it worse for them, they get really scared."

So by all means Democrats, keeping putting one of the most unpopular figures in US politics out there bashing something most Americans like. That's an awesome plan!

And oh yeah, please keep Barney Frank availible to pimp the 'public option' as a backdoor to a single payer system.
