Black Before The Election

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on September 22, 2009

President Obama’s humor is greatly appreciated and I especially appreciate the work and open politics of his appearances on the TV over the past week.  Investing this kind of sweat equity (or what passes as real work for a politician) is not missed by this observer’s understanding that he is diligently working to solidify the Democrats into making this “Health Care Reform” windfall for the insurance companies become reality.

Without the checks and balances of a Universal Health Care, a Public Option, this legislation working through the legislature now is a Cash Cow of windfall profits for the insurance industry.  What is being formed is the rape of the public, the open invitation into the national treasury to the insurance industry and will not provide cost control or competition to help reduce the cost.  This is not health care reform as proposed; it is feeding the insurance companies 40 million subsidized customers without making any demands that they perform any better than they have in the past.

I do not subscribe to the idea that “something is better than nothing” in this instance at all.  It is clear to me that the corrupt political atmosphere on Capital Hill is hell-bent on punishment of the voting public in this action with the Baucus Health Bill being the foundation for reform.  This is bad legislation, it is recognized as bad legislation and the politicians are demonstrating the depth that the insurance companies have purchased them in the current circus and outlined “health care reform” that is not health care or reform.

Demand a Public Option, a single payer system and watch these thieves in Washington like a hawk.  They do not have American Citizen’s best interests at the heart of these actions being proposed.  These purchased politicians have their own interests and the interests of the insurance industry at the core of their acts.
