The New Harry and Louise | TPMCafe

The opponents of health care reform in the 90's had 'Harry and Louise', the middle class couple afraid that they wouldn't be able to choose their own doctor. But the front man for this year's opposition is Rick Scott, the javascript:void(0)disgraced CEO of Columbia/HCA.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R.-Texas), one of the Republican health care opposition leaders likes what Rick Scott has to say. But mostly he likes that Scott is going to spend $5 million of his own considerable fortune running scare ads ("Imagine waking up one day and all your medical decisions are made by a central, national board," he warns in a radio spot) on TV and radio.

With Obama's new job approval ratings at 66%, you've got to wonder if the Republicans could have possibly chosen a worse spokesman for their side of the health care debate.

I guess Tom Delay was too busy.
