President Pinocchio

President Obama decried opposition to his health care proposal Saturday saying that the other side has offered no plan and that the government plan is the only way to ensure health care coverage for those who can't afford it.

Mr. President, we wonder why your nose does not grow bigger like Pinocchio's for telling such a tale.

There are other plans that do not include government control; two such ideas proposed by Republicans include giving a tax break for insurance costs. It would be nice for the government to put money back in people's hands so they can control it themselves - without the likes of Pelosi and Reid doing it for them. Another idea is to allow insurance companies to sell nationally and not just state to state.

Mr. President, you need to start telling the truth to the citizens of this country and stop trying to out-Pinocchio Pinocchio.
