Default Scarborough Concedes Public Option Is ‘Not A Government Takeover Of Health Care’

“I have yet to hear that,” Scarborough responded. “Well why are people against the public plan?” Weiner asked. Scarborough responded with this astonishing admission:
SCARBOROUGH: Because they’ve seen over the past six months government grow, they believe at too rapid of a rate and they’re skeptical. I don’t think there has been an explanation of how the government plan is not equal to the government takeover of health care — which we all know it’s not a government takeover of health care but that’s how it sounds to people.

Scarborough may be stupid, but the people are not. Public option is a trojan horse and people know it. So do the Dems and some have admitted as much. Most, however, are content to just go on lying about the ultimate objective.

Why, I think you and Think Progress have left a few things out; namely, Weiner admits that a public option is a great way to eliminate private HC.

S: But you are making the conservatives’ point. You are making the point of the people at the town hall meetings who say this is Barack Obama’s opportunity to get rid of private health care and turn it completely over to the government. I’m sitting here stunned, saying Oh My God, you’re making the point of the health care protesters.
