Matt - you're not making sense
On the public option, this new guy is shooting you down without trying and shaking his head - your takes are so brain-dead that he can't even figure out which irrational thing to shoot down first.
Every CBO analysis shows that the public option decreases the deficit. You say, with nothing to back it up, that it will add a trillion to the deficit. He comes back with the latest CBO figures. So then you come back and say how can they score it if they don't know how many states are going to opt out.
Look Matt - you can't have it both ways. If states opting out reduces the deficit, then it's even better than the CBO says. If states opting out adds to the deficit then why would they opt out? You say it's bad - but when confronted with it not being bad, you say - well, we conservatives will opt out to MAKE it bad. I mean - what the heck is wrong with your brain, dude? You're so obsessed with having the democrats fail that you've completely lost sight of caring about the country. It may be a political power game for you, but some of us actually live here, you know.
