24. This healthcare bill is designed to destroy healthcare...l
Edited on Mon Aug-24-09 08:54 AM by CoffeeCat
First off, all of these politicians fighting about "the public option" is a joke. They all know that it's meaningless. Just
as this article demonstrates--they've watered down the public option into non-reform healthcare reform.

The politicians all ready have what they want--single payer off the table.

At this point, the fights are all fake fighting--and they damn well know it. I think some of the fighting on the Dem
side is a tactic to keep the Progressives in line--as we are fooled into believing that our Dems fought for healthcare
reform, as they fight for the public option.

Single payer leaves many uninsured--which is critical--because costs still won't be contained. We've still got the
insurance companies in power and making medical decisions--and the public option mandates some insurance. That won't
work.

This entire thing is set up to FAIL IN A PUBLIC BLAZE OF GLORY.

This is happening for one reason and one reason only---so they can all point to this failed experiment and say, "SEE!
WE TOLD YOU GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE WAS NOT THE SOLUTION!!!"

We are so, so screwed.
