Senator Conrad, stop pissing on us and telling us it’s raining:
Sen. Kent Conrad told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that there are not enough votes in the Senate to pass a public option for health insurance. “The fact of the matter is there are not the votes in the United States Senate for a public option. There never have been,” said Conrad.
The reason why “there are not enough votes in the Senate” for a public option is because Kent Conrad opposes it. He would prefer an ineffective co-op plan favored by the insurers. So far, Conrad hasn’t told us anything about his co-ops, which should tell you something about how wonderful it is.
Remember, this is the same guy who lied and insisted that reconciliation couldn’t be used for health care reform. On this issue, at least, you know that Kent Conrad is lying when his lips are moving.
