Even as a new poll
finds that a clear and growing majority of Americans support a public
option in health care, its opponents are working harder and sleazier
than ever to stop it. ThinkProgress takes a disturbing look at the
latest moves
by Rick Scott's insurance-industry-funded Conservatives for Patients'
Rights to "deliver a decisive knock-out punch" to health care reform.
It also documents the industry's duplicitous, labyrinthian campaign to date against reform, "daylight charm" and all. Sorry, but these people deserve to get very sick and lose their insurance.
