Howard Dean was not in the mood to listen to Sen. Mary Landrieu try to take the high road in opposing the public option or lying about Dean's position on insurance companies so he let her have it. From Hardball:
Dean: "You're forcing us into insurance companies, you took away our choice."
Landrieu: "You never had that choice to begin with..."
Wow, we didn't? That's news to us. Are we the only ones who heard Obama bring up the public choice too many times to count? Of course Landrieu was under the impression that the "dumb" voting public thought the public option meant "free" health care for all!
These "Blue Dog" Democrats are only increasing the cost of health care, not supposedly saving consumers money. But we'll just have to wait for the GAO report, won't we.
