Letter to the Editor
Last Thursday Republican House leader John Boehner said in regards to a public option for health insurance, “This thing is about as unpopular as a garlic milkshake.” As a home owner in Gilroy California, the garlic capital of the world, I have to say that I agree. However Mr. Boehner has never been to one of our Garlic Festivals where garlic ice cream is served and obviously doesn’t realize how popular it is. Likewise he also seems to have no idea how popular the public option for health care reform is. So because he is wrong on both counts his statement is barely correct. It just goes to show you that when it comes to Republicans, sometimes two wrongs do make a right.
