    I think just about everybody who reads this site will grant the premise that the insurance companies CAN'T/WON'T/DON'T lower their prices.  So I don't think the public option would ever actually disappear.  I was more wondering the the Blue Dog / Republicans "reason" to oppose a reverse trigger would be?  I've heard the lame arguments against a PO (that it will somehow rip off the American people AND put insurance companies out of business), but this has a mechanism to remove the public option if the insurance companies ACTUALLY lowered their prices.  What would be next on their list of reasons?  Any ideas?  THanks.

    Tact is just not saying true stuff. I'll pass.

      ...and under wraps. Why should I give them any more ammunition than they already have at their disposal? Why would I want to? Hypotheticals, suppositions and theories about their next move have a way of reaching the enemy. This site has been infiltrated by all sorts of trolls and spies for the other side from day one. I'll deal with their next step, if and when it rears its ugly head, but in no way will I feed them talking points. I'm not as stupid as they want me to be. This isn't a game for me. This is a matter of survival of the fittest in more way than one, and be forewarned is being forearmed. They will get no respite, no relief, and no aid and comfort from me. There will be political fallout and casualties on both sides in this class war to be sure. Yes, it is indeed a class war. Make no mistake about that.
