Facts. Stubborn facts.

 |  NCR Today

Earlier, I blogged about how many conservatives who are against any form of health care reform seem satisfied to stay in the clouds of pejorative words, misinformation and mis-characterization. Opponents just don't want to focus on the facts, and then make informed, reasoned decisions in favor or against, all or part of differing proposals.

Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.), while at a town hall gathering, was presented with a zany question and his response was:

"With regards to the first comment about being forced to buy health care, I'll say it again... The bill does not force anybody to buy health care ... The bill does not force people to change their health care plan. If you're in a plan, you will not be forced into the public option. You will not be forced into the health insurance exchange. Now folks will say that's not true, but I've got facts on my side and you've got Glenn Beck on your side. It's just not going to play out that way."

Facts. Stubborn facts.
