  •  Isn't his audience lower middle class? (6+ / 0-)

    As well as people on Medicare? The former need the public option, as he is smart enough to realize.  Maybe he had a problem with insurers.  

    I think this is just right-wing populism, which occasionally does make sense.  It usually has the wrong enemy, but not always.

      •  I donb't know. That 70% has to come from (0+ / 0-)
