Republicans can't string together two sentences to a journo without lying

Or even one!

Obamacare, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP - none of these is "government run health care," nor are all of them together.

An American National Health Service of which all medical personnel were employees and that owned all hospitals, clinics, doctor's offices, or other medical facilities would be an American and national example of government run health care, and some people think it would be better than what we have now, if it provided good and equal care for all Americans.

And Obamacare is not an awful law from which Americans need to be protected.

"Opposition to government run health care has been a foundation of the Republican party for three or four generations now, so it is difficult to see House Republicans walk away from efforts to protect the American people from this awful law," said Michael Steel, former spokesman for ex-House Speaker John Boehner.

A lot of people seem not to realize that if the people are to prefer capitalism to full-on socialism it has to be because it's better for them, the people, and not because it's better for capitalists and their best serving running dogs.

Capitalism is a political choice, not an inevitability.
