Mike Steele Continues To Speak Uncomfortable Truths

It never ceases to amaze me, the things Michael Steele will admit to…

“These days branding is more of a marketing term,” said Steele. “It’s about persuading the public that we Republicans really believe in limited government, lower taxes, individual liberty and personal responsibility, regardless of our actual behavior in office.

(…)

“In the real world,” said Steele, “It’s much more practical to hire consultants to craft new talking points, logos, slogans and advertising than it is to try to get a bunch of rogue Republican incumbents to actually stand together for our values, and walk the talk.”

Shorter Steele: “We suck, and it’s much easier to lie about it than to actually stop sucking.”

Oh No, Anything But That…

Ben Nelson puts his finger on exactly what’s wrong with a public healthcare plan:

Nelson’s problem, he told CQ, is that the public plan would be too attractive and would hurt the private insurance plans. “At the end of the day, the public plan wins the game,” Nelson said. Including a public option in a health plan, he said, was a “deal breaker.”

Gosh yes, that would be a disaster! Thank goodness we have dedicated public servants like Nelson to protect us from such horrors.

And by “us”, of course I mean the insurance industry.
