Why there’s no ‘There’ll be no rationing.’

Mickey Kaus wants to know:

I still don’t quite understand why Obama can’t bring hmself to say some variation of a) “There won’t be rationing” or b) there won’t be rationing under the Kinsley definition–“Any treatment that I,┬áthe President, would get you will get,” or c) “Medicare doesn’t ration now and won’t ration in the future, period. There will be no change in how Medicare decides what treatments to pay for.┬áThe goal is to get it to pay for more, not less.” Read My Lipitor!** No New Rationing.

Because the President doesn’t dare lie about something like that? The ads for 2012 would write themselves.

Ask me a hard one, next time.
