How to Take Back the Health Care Debate

Finally, a voice of reason emerges, but no one seems to be listening: George Lakoff has this short take on what Dems need to do to take back the “debate.” His points:

  • Name the villain: insurance companies that are doing exactly what the screamers are saying “reform” will do.
  • What has failed is insurance company health care.
  • Ask: Who’s had to wait for an authorization for care? Who’s been denied authorization by insurance companies? Who has lost their insurance?
  • Change “public option” to the “American plan” (Are you for the American plan or not?)
  • Insurance companies spend 20-30% of premiums to deny you care.

Hmmm, no talk of killing Grandma or my personal favorite: promoting “gender confusion” by pushing sex change operations!

Lakoff also had a interview on Minnesota Public Radio. The sad thing is that the truth does not seem to be an option.
