Yet another Obama contradiction

The Messiah in 2006: "Combining Private and Public Health Insurance 'Worst of Both Worlds.'"

As Barack Obama and his media minions try to force healthcare reform down the throats of the American people, the President has repeatedly said that a public option would increase competition for private insurance companies and thereby drive down prices.

This apparently wasn't his view in 2006 when he said the expansion of medicare to include prescription drug coverage for seniors was "the worst of both worlds: we've got the price gouging of the private sector and the bureaucracy of the public sector." (Source.)

Good catch here Hube!
Some thoughts:
a- Obama was just making noise against a Bush policy.
b- Obama is actually against expanding benefits for seniors when the vast najority are white.
c- So Obama wants to keep that money and spend it on non-seniors in his voting bloc [aka mainly lazy losers].
d- Today Obama wants to cut Medicare so he can spend on his aforementioned voting bloc [mainly lazy losers].

Viewed this way, Obama is being consistent.
