Fox News host and conservative firebrand Eric Bolling proposed a health care alternative that bears striking resemblance to the public option, a government-issued insurance program that was originally considered as part of the health care reform law that was the target of his network.Are you fricken kidding me, Eric? The Republicans don't support a public option for insurance because people like you would tear them to shreds if they ever attempted such a thing. Let us remind everyone that back during the HCR debate, the public option was removed from the final bill in the hopes of attracting Republican votes. As we all know by now, that didn't help whatsoever and the Republicans wound up voting against a vastly more conservative plan, so why in the hell would they now support something to the left of Obamacare?
On the February 11 edition of Fox's The Five, Bolling reacted to news that the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate was being delayed for some businesses by suggesting Republicans replace the ACA's mandate to purchase insurance with an optional government-issued alternative. Bolling said this plan would have the benefit of driving "all the prices down" in the health care market, and expressed puzzlement about "why the Republicans don't do this".
