On MSNBC today, Mike Pence illustrated Republican contradictions and hypocrisy on healthcare:
PENCE: This is not a deal that will go over well with the American people. They understand what a governmentment run insurance plan will mean.
PENCE: A government run insurance option that the President’s insisted on is going to amount to a government takeover of our health care economy.
PENCE (challenged by Andrea Mitchell on support for Medicare): Oh, no, I support Medicare, and have supported the program.
This is like saying, "I hate meat. Despise it. Meat is shit. But I love beef!"
