Kent Conrad Doesn't Get It

From Brian Beutler's coverage of the Finance Committee debate today:

11:55 a.m.: Conrad's up. He calls his co-op model a "public interest" model, despite the fact that the CBO says his co-op plan would be a big bust. He's also very mistakenly saying that the French health care system would be a bit like the Baucus bill with a non-profit option.

The French system is nothing like the Baucus Plan. Good gravy, who is this guy?!
