Weiner v Scarborough
U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner (D-New York) offered us a spirited debate for the single payer system on "Morning Joe." No single payer bill would pass in the Senate but I have to hand it to him. Joe Scarborough was at a loss of words when the U.S. Representative asked him what the health insurance companies bring to the table of value and what was the response that would come from the conservative host is that Weiner is pushing for the "government take over" of our health insurance industry. The president of course supports to a questionable degree a health insurance reform package that includes a public option.
