“Let’s not try to sell a government-run plan using free-market rhetoric.”

Rep. Paul Ryan is interviewed on MSNBC about health care reforms and does an exceptional job of letting people know why it’s prudent not to rush a vote on a 1,000 page bill that most legislators haven’t even read.

He also busts the myths that legislators already have access to a public option and that opposing the public plan is opposing competition in the health care market.

Rep. Ryan also points out at around 4:17 that when an amendment to include all members of Congress into the public option was introduced to the bill to show that the public plan is up to snuff and worthy of the trust of the American public, it failed.
