Daschle Playing Key Role In Health Reforms [Pushing GOV'T Co-ops]
Posted on 08/25/2009 1:43:07 AM PDT by BunnySlippers
Former U.S. Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., is playing a key role in shaping a healthcare reform compromise measure, analysts say.
Daschle, who withdrew his nomination to be President Barack Obama's "health reform czar" in February after coming under fire for not paying certain taxes, has been ubiquitous in behind-the-scenes moves to forge an agreement establishing non-profit insurance cooperatives as an alternative to a government-run "public option" plan, The New York Times reported Sunday.

... Other than his being more extreme than most, and the fact that he and his wife work in tandem as a public-private team, there isn't anything particularly unusual about how Tom Daschle functions. He's quite emblematic of the Beltway syndrome. But that's the point: while it's unreasonable to expect that Obama will be able to avoid all ethically questionable individuals, it seems rather unnecessary to take one of the most ethically compromised Beltway mavens and place him in charge of a massive industry, one that has been lavishing him with undeserved wealth for the past several years.

Greta did an excellent job with this last night. She compared Tiny Tim’s jump on the alledged health care crisis bandwagon with Gore’s global warming activities. She also showed how Timmy is a lobbyist while claiming not to be one.

Interesting to know again how much damage to the nation the people have SD have done with their Democrat congressmen but nominal Republican presidential votes all these years
You know Co-ops are another form of socialism it Daschle is pushing for them.
