Yesterday, Gov. Jim Douglas spoke against the "public option" for health care. Today, one of his Democratic opponents dumped on him for it.
Says Sen. Doug Racine, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor:
"Jim Douglas does not understand that his reliance on private insurance
companies has not produced the affordability, accessibility, or accountability
that Vermonters really need and never will. He is out of step with
President Obama, our congressional delegation, and most Vermonters who
understand that providing people with the choice of a public health care option
"While it is an honor to have a Vermonter as chairman of the National
Governors Association once again, it is unfortunate that Jim Douglas does not
understand what the last Vermonter who held the position does. ...
Sadly, Jim Douglas is using his new position to oppose real change."
