*** WNO SOUNDBITE ADVISORY ***
Video: Sen. Tom Coburn, M.D. Says Government Bureaucrats Will Decide Your Health Care
"What will happen, ultimately, is you will move to a public option which will decrease the number of people with private insurance, number two it'll raise the cost of those that are left with private insurance, and ultimately a government bureaucrat will decide what kind of health care you get."
Who: Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK)
What: Exclusive interview regarding health care.
When: Monday, October 26th, 2009.
Coburn Soundbite #1: Public Option Will Become Single Payer System.
"I don't know whether a final package whenever it finally comes out of conference will have a public option but if it is that's the start to single payer."
Coburn Soundbite #2: 88 New Bureaucracies In Health Care Bill.
"Nobody knows what's in the bill. The bill came out of help committee and created 88 new programs. If you think the federal government isn't going to be involved in your health care with 88 new bureaucracies you've got another thought coming because this is a government centric run at health care rather than a patient centered run at health care."
Length of Full Interview: 4:40
