Paul Krugman on the absurd arguments against the public healthcare option:

In any other western country, Paul Krugman would be considered mildly liberal, perhaps even conservative. But in the United States, Krugman is a major voice for the progressive movement, and is seen by the Right as a loony liberal hell bent on bringing socialism to America.

Supporting a public plan has now been designated as a policy position of the far Left, and anyone who supports it wants death panels for the elderly and Nazism for America. Ridiculous.
