Bobby Jindal has been keeping a relatively low profile since his goofy TV response to Obama in February. He's back, but you'll have to imagine his folksy cadence because this time he chose the medium of print. In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Jindal goes after Obama's health care plan.He has three main complaints. First, he says that the promise that you can keep your private health care plan is empty because the reforms are designed to push people into the public option. He also worries about the expense of the plan. And lastly, he questions whether the government can provide quality health care:...the Democrats disingenuously argue their reforms will not diminish the quality of our health care even as government involvement in the delivery of that health care increases massively. For all of us who have seen the Federal Emergency Management Agency's response to hurricanes, this contention is laughable on its face.The FEMA response was terrible, yes. Maybe Jindal and I can agree on this: if we try government health care let's not put the horse show guy in charge this time.
