Lincoln to Oppose Public Health Option

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) said yesterday “she opposes a public health insurance option because it would be too expensive,” Arkansas News reports.

“For some in my caucus, when they talk about a public option they’re talking about another entitlement program, and we can’t afford that right now as a nation,” Lincoln said in a speech to the Elder Law Task Force at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Josh Kraushaar notes that this comes one day after receiving what many expect to be a credible 2010 Republican challenger.

    So Senator Lincoln, who filling your coffers with their Buying Senators Out Money?

    The Hell With The People. Blanche’s deep pockets are more important!

    Cha-Ching!!

    Isn’t bribery illegal? Lincoln has taken $300,000 + in “bribery” payments to vote against a public option. How would she vote if (1) no money had been given to her and (2) if her health care were taken away ??
