Top of the morning


The people in North Carolina continue to be the focus of all sorts of national attention, and not all of it is good.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is targeting North Carolina and four other states in a new national ad campaign [2] designed to mislead us into opposiing any public health care option.

The campaign will include print and internet ads as well as rallies and other events. How did we get so lucky?

In case you have already seen an ad from the chamber or Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina trying to scare you into thinking the public option will be the end of civilization as we know it, here’s President Obama from his press conference last night.

If you already have health insurance, the reform we’re proposing will provide you with more security and more stability. It will keep government out of health care decisions, giving you the option to keep your insurance if you’re happy with it.
