Health Insurance Editorial (Public Option)

Here is one of those anti-healthcare blogs against whitehouse chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Watch how the Republican's try to demonize the Whitehouse.

"Guess we know who’s in charge over at the White House while the president is out of town.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal published today, Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, suggested the administration is open to negotiations on one of President Obama’s central goals for a health care bill: a government-sponsored insurance plan – a “public option,” in Washington argot – that would compete with the private sector.

“The goal is to have a means and a mechanism to keep the private insurers honest. The goal is non-negotiable; the path is” negotiable, the newspaper quoted Mr. Emanuel as saying.

But Mr. Emanuel did not get the last word. Within hours, the chief of staff was big-footed – all the way from Moscow — by his boss, Mr. Obama, who is in Russia prior to the meeting of the “Group of Eight” economic powers. The White House issued an official statement declaring that Mr. Obama remains committed to the public option.

“I am pleased by the progress we’re making on health care reform and still believe, as I’ve said before, that one of the best ways to bring down costs, provide more choices, and assure quality is a public option that will force the insurance companies to compete and keep them honest,’’ the statement said. “I look forward to a final product that achieves these very important goals.”
