Briefly Why the Health Care Bill Pisses Me Off
The bill has been shaped around keeping Republicans and marginal Democrats happy. The bill has been molded to health care lobby specs. President Obama has sat back and done little to nothing push for the public option. As the bill stands now it sucks for the consumer and is a boon for the insurance and medicine industries as well as Wall Street. Now that Republicans have done everything they can to make the bill terrible they will make sure to not vote for it. When the half-assed bill that they helped weaken has half-assed results they will shake they heads and say, "See those poor sad liberals and their ridiculous fantasies." Now, to the masses, the crony capitalist corporate Republicans are the populists. They are guerrilla warfare, government saboteurs. That is why you fight them and ignore them because they are not there to help us. You go around them or you go over them. The lack of fight in the Democratic party would be astounding if it hadn't become pathological. I hope I am wrong. I hope the bill helps a lot of people soon and is revisited in the coming years. I hope.
