The Best Government Money Can Buy
The health care bill, with no public option, no Medicare buy-in, etc etc etc, and we are suppose to feel that our vote counts? The whole thing is one big joke. I would believe that Jesus walked on water before anyone could convince me that this health care bill is anything but another victory for the insurance industry. Even if some form of the bill passes and is signed into law, who is going to enforce it? Who is going to line those insurance executives up against the wall if they do not honor the terms of the contract? Things will have to get a lot worse before the American people will demand that their representatives speak for their welfare and not the corporate welfare that passes for capitalism here in America.
Insurance corporations need the protection of the Congress in order to do business with the American family? Their power in terms of financial resources is such that they need special laws passed by our Congress in order to make a profit? The Congress of the United States will continue to represent special interests until those in Congress that choose to ignore their constituents will be turned out by the electorate. That day is coming.
As more people realize that there is no pea under any of the shells, the American people will wise up.
