Will Rep. Ryan give up his gubmint health care?

Have you read Rep. Paul Ryan’s health care “reform” plan?

I have, and I’ve got a question: Is Rep. Ryan willing to give up his taxpayer-funded, gubmint-run health care plan in favor of the $5,700 tax credit his health care reform plan calls for, so that he can buy health insurance for his family with said $5,700?

Given the fact that the average cost of health care insurance premiums for families topped $12,700 in 2008, I’m willing to bet Rep. Ryan’s answer to my question would be a resounding and unambiguous NO!”

H/T to Harris Kane.

    I think a better question would be, would Obamas plan give us minions the same access to care as all the Washington Politicians have, or would we all be forced on to Medicare?

  2. The gubmint run plan is actually many options provided by private insurance companies. Ryan has a choice….. The question is will Nancy Pelosi give that up to go on gubmint run health care?

  3. Fair question.
    Speaking of “fair question”, what do you think of the white house asking citizens to turn in citizens? Why does it seem “the left” is only concerned with a persons right to free speech when it is infringed upon by “the right”? Hopefully I’m just missing the “lefts” outrage, but I haven’t seen anything so far.
    (and dang it, now I can’t even get to your site on my phone much less leave a comment!!!)

  4. Rabbitt has a valuable point. This is the first time that I can recall that the White House established a direct rumor control apparatus. Other times it was information collected by the parties and policy sympathizers. This time it appears to be a direct citizen solicitation of policy opposition. I don’t know what to think of that yet.

    I know that I would not have supported that shenanigan in the gin up to the Iraq War, the support of torture, or the domestic intelligence operation under George Bush.

    I prefer that the White House remain above the fight and not participate in the fray. But I am biased towards national healthcare and that is coloring my judgment on this. Perhaps, like all men, I am willing to overlook an indiscretion when the outcome favors me.

    Hmmm, Rabbitt, now I will have to think a little deeper about my position on this. I dislike hypocrisy, especially my own.

  5. I would have to agree with Rabbit and PB. I don’t know too much about it…but what I have heard makes me wonder what the WH is thinking. I hope someone in the press will ask Gibbs about it.

  6. Sort of getting back on the subject:

    “Some animals are better than others”. I might want to paint that on a barn around here. Whaddya think?
