That’s Nice

It’s nice to know that that “some of his best friends are progressives.”

From President Obama’s speech last night: “To my progressive friends, I would remind you that for decades, the driving idea behind reform has been to end insurance company abuses and make coverage affordable for those without it.”

Actually Mr. President, liberals and progressives have been more concerned with getting people actual health care, rather than insurance. Insurance doesn’t cure anything.
