This email from Nancy Pelosi to her supporters is the definition of Congressional doublespeak, rife with misleading statements like:
“Rather than creating a ‘government takeover of health care,’…America’s Affordable Health Choices Act…will expand enrollment in private insurance by an estimated 6 million Americans.”
Um, Nancy, mandating that all Americans buy a certain kind of insurance from certain government-approved providers is a “government takeover of health care.” It doesn’t matter if you then call those companies “private.”
That’s like saying Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are actually private entities because they are owned by individual shareholders.
Does she really think we are this stupid?Details
