A Truly Lapidary Moment, by Chris Floyd

The Reason for the Anger and Intractability
of the Debate Over Health Care Reform in the United States
:

Written by Chris Floyd

One side is lying; the other side is not telling the truth.

*

Or to put it another way: One side is pretending that a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations is really hardcore, gutbucket socialism from the Bolshevik trenches, while the other side is pretending that its "reform" is not really a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations but something that will somehow, in some way, be good for some people at some point way down the line.

*

One often finds that dealing in such utter unreality makes it ... difficult to achieve workable solutions to real-life problems.
Res ipsa loquitur.
