Stop it. Really, stop laughing. He’s serious. Keith Olbermann proclaimed he would rather go to jail than be forced by the government to buy health insurance.
Now you might say, hey, Keith is with us, those of us who stand for personal freedom and individual liberty. Not so fast my brothers and sisters. Keith says he will gladly face jail time because he would be forced to buy “private insurance’ instead of a public option. OK, you may resume laughing again. Go to Newsbusters to read the transcript or just enjoy the video.
I am so tempted to say, oblige him. Interestingly he says he is self insured, which means he pays cash for his docs. I’m all for that. But that’s pretty much the luxury of the wealthy, while the limo liberals confine the rest of us to a crummy federally run health care system. Good for us but not for them. But since he is in favor of pushing this crap, in particular the public option on the rest of us, I would expect him to not just buy into it … but use it as well. No cash for the specialist of your choice, Keith. You limo liberals crack me up.
