Quoth Paul Krugman:
" At a recent town hall meeting, a man stood up and told Representative Bob Inglis to "keep your government hands off my Medicare." The congressman, a Republican from South Carolina, tried to explain that Medicare is already a government program — but the voter, Mr. Inglis said, "wasn’t having any of it."
It’s a funny story — but it illustrates the extent to which health reform must climb a wall of misinformation. It’s not just that many Americans don’t understand what President Obama is proposing; many people don’t understand the way American health care works right now. "
And not that this next part is in any way substantively related to the previous quote, but it is in the same vein of "Are you fucking serious?"
Get ready for this conspiracy theory... you ready?
At last night's "Beer Summit," president Obama drank a NON-alcoholic beer, not the Bud Lite that had been reported, in order to maintain the dietary restriction on alcohol as required BY HIS MUSLIM FAITH.
I'm not joking. This has a good chance at growing legs and running. Sphere: Related Content
