173. She has a right to vent her frustrations with the Democratic "majority"
Honestly, Why exactly did I vote for Obama in the primaries? He and Hillary Clinton are practically the same person. Except maybe she has bigger balls. I don't think things would look any different.

Hmm, we are still in Iraq, there are prisoners still in Guantanomo, none of the Bush Government Stasi spy on the American citizens shit has been rolled back. Habeas Corpus? Hell, we are still paying Blackwater/Xe

So now I could be mandated to pay a third of my income to health insurance companies? Fuck. It wasn't enough my grandchildren will be paying down TARP; now they get to be saddled with gargantuan college debt and unaffordable insurance. I wanted a Health Care Reform Bill, not a Health insurance Company Handout Bill.
Seems like the leadership of the US is still firmly in the watch pocket of the corporations.

Change?

And exactly how will mandating people to pay their remaining disposable income and then some on insurance help the economy?
I predict this will have the same effect on healthcare as subsidies did on college tuition. So long as there is profit to be made, big business will find a tighter vise in which to express it. I'm already short of breath.

Soon we will all be looking for some spare change.
