Health care newspeak

President Obama speaking today in Strongsville, Ohio:
I don't believe we should give the government or the insurance companies more control over health care in America. I believe it's time to give you - the American people - more control over your own health insurance.
Wait, what? Really? The fresh-off-the-presses health care reconciliation bill weighs in at an astonishing 2,309 pages and President Obama has the audacity to claim he doesn't think the government should be given more control over health care in America? What exactly does he think is in it if not reams of new regulations and restrictions on health care?

As for insurance companies, their fingerprints are all over the health care legislation which, after all, forces the American public to buy their product.

If President Obama subscribes to his own rhetoric he will waste no time in vetoing this health care bill should it pass.
