Charlotte Allen writes immediately below  about the suddenly popular “trigger”mechanism—you know that trigger that would replace the hugely unpopular “public option?” And just what would the trigger trigger? Yep. You guessed it—the public option.

If you have any doubt that wily supporters of Obamacare see it this way, here is political reporter Chuck Todd’s Twitter on Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, who “just endorsed the ‘rigger’for public option on MSNBC says u may not have ‘robust’ public option at 1st.”

Not at first? Support for a public option will never be robust, especially after it has been foisted on us by the sneaky trigger mechanism. But then it will be too late.
