Don't be fooled. Public option is not off the table -- at least not yet

As soon as I heard the news that the Obama administration is considering taking the public option out of the health care reform plan, I was skeptical. The administration has faked right and gone left waaay too many times. Remember these golden oldies?

-no lobbyists in the administration -- now 3/4 of his upper advisers are former lobbyist;

-full disclosure with legislation on the Internet -- in reality every major piece of legislation has been rammed through without so much as the lawmakers reading it;

-open health care debate on C-span -- actually, billion dollar taxpayer funded deals were cut in back-door, secret meetings with drug companies.

It is no time to let up on Washington.

Michelle Malkin seems to agree.
