Bill O’Reilly Backs the Public Option

Reported by Julie - September 17, 2009 -

Bill O’Reilly and I have a love-hate relationship. Well, it’s mostly not love, but after learning of his recent proclamation about healthcare reform, we’re friends again.

As reported by the Huffington Post, linking to the Daily Kos, O’Reilly came out in support of the public option, saying, “I want that . . . I want that, I want, not personally for me, but for working Americans to have a option, that if they don't like their health insurance, if it's too expensive, they can't afford it, if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks.” With video.

O’Reilly is a veritable see-saw of opinions. One minute, he’s defending then-candidate Obama and criticizing the smears that came from John McCain’s campaign, the next he’s slamming President Obama’s “lack of religion”. One minute he and Glenn Beck are on a mission against ACORN, (an organization that works to help the impoverished), and the next he’s criticizing the conservatives in a column supporting President Obama’s hotly-debated (go figure) speech to schoolchildren.

Heavens – Bill O’Reilly’s going rogue!?!
