Pearlstein Has Had It!

This column is over the top and very entertaining. His smack down on Michael Steele is so deserved. This isn’t the first time he has called the RNC and their brethren out on their lies and distortions, but it is the funniest.

After reading his broadside, one is left wondering exactly what health reform plan Steele thought he was attacking. At one point, Steele claims that Democrats would prevent Americans from keeping their doctors or an insurance plan they like. Later, he warns that government will soon be setting caps on how many heart surgeries could be performed in the United States each year. Where is he getting this stuff? Has the chairman of the Republican Party somehow gotten hold of a top-secret plan for a government takeover of the health-care system that GOP operatives snatched during a break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters?

If all that sounds spurious and unsubstantiated, it is. And like many of the overstated claims in this column, its purpose is to highlight the lies, distortions and political scare tactics that Steele and other Republicans have used to poison the national debate over health reform.

Have you no shame, sir? Have you no shame?

It seems to me that when a mild-mannered MSM Business Columnist starts to really call you out and ridicule you, it might just be time to rethink your plan and approach to one of the most important economic problems of our time.

I’m not saying, but I think you know what I’m saying!
