Don't be fooled. Obama is faking center-right.
The "public option" is nothing more and nothing less than government-run health care. Americans have figured that out, and they don't want it. So what do you do when you're desperate to sell a product nobody wants? You rename it.
Co-ops = Public Option = Government-run health care

- Co-Ops Would Be Regulated By Federal Government.
- Co-Ops Would Force Individuals Who Want To Join To Go Through State Governments.
- The Federal Government Would Use Co-Ops To Monopolize Health Insurance.

Sen. Leader Harry Reid: "We’re going to have some type of public option, call it 'co-op,' call it what you want..."
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
