According to an unnamed "top White House official":
It's hard to talk about socialized medicine when the hospitals, doctors, insurers, the private sector players are working with us at the White House.
Let me get this straight. A president who is ideologically committed to socialized medicine is negotiating with an industry that's committed to making as much money as possible off of socialized medicine.
But don't worry. If there's one thing they're not discussing, it's socialized medicine.
