The Public Option: DOA
The Times reports Big Pharma to spend up to $150 million advertising Max Baucus’ healthcare plan (the one without a public health insurance option).
So much for that, I guess. With the furor already raised over “big government”, a few velvety advertisements from the friendly (and seductive) makers of Lexapril should squelch public option discussion once and for all.
No wonder the Times also ran a front page analysis yesterday, effectively declaring the public option dead.
Corporate interests, for the win!
