“It’s Just Ridiculous…Which is it?”

The quote of the day on Obama’s health care plan belongs to Rowena Ventura. “You see,” she said, gesturing at Mr. Obama on the television (during his press conference last Tuesday night), “he’s saying he wants to continue private insurance, but then he says they’re part of the problem. Well, which is it? It’s just ridiculous.”

Rowena Verntura, 44, is an uninsured worker from Cleveland, OH, who just moved her ailing mother into a house she shares with her disabled husband. 

She is quoted in Kevin Sack, “For Public, Obama Didn’t Fill in Health Blanks,” New York Times, July 23, 2009, p. A1, read online at http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/24/health/policy/24voices.html?ref=todayspaper

She’s right.  It is ridiculous.
