the ignorant-or-misleading question

the most interesting thing about conservative attacks on obama's health reform plan is that they bear no relation to obama's actual health reform plan. for these attacks to be effective you have to be completely ignorant about every serious health care proposal currently being proposed by the white house or members of congress. so either the conservatives making these arguments are completely ignorant about the actual health care debate, or they're just trying to mislead the american public because they can't address the merits of the actual proposals.

i suppose it could also be both.
