I'm on the side that the other two sides are trying to suppress
Chris Floyd sums up the health care reform debate:
One side is lying; the other side is not telling the truth.
Or to put it another way: One side is pretending that a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations is really hardcore, gutbucket socialism from the Bolshevik trenches, while the other side is pretending that its "reform" is not really a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations but something that will somehow, in some way, be good for some people at some point way down the line.
Of course, single payer advocates are on the side of a policy that can actually be shown to save both lives and money. That makes them persona non grata in Versailles (and unpersons on the A list, naturally).
