The much anticipated Obama health care speech is about to begin. While we wait, I wanted to share this with you.
In this video (via HuffPo) Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich takes about 70 seconds to explain the way the Public Option works. Then he talks about the motivations of the people who are making all the noise opposing it. This is perhaps the most concise description of what the public option really is that I've ever heard.
And because he's not a teabagger, you won't hear phrases like "health care rationing" or "death panels" at any point.
Because he's telling the simple truth.
