the big sell out
September 11, 2009
Now that the —
Sale of health care reform has gone public, the only thing I can ask is that real democrats left in D.C. refuse to sign the ridiculous lie that is being peddled by the President and his new friends the Republicans.
And I mean lie. Because thirty million new customers for health insurance companies, although clearly a boon to Wall Street where stocks just jumped, does not equal health care reform. And mandating citizens buy insurance from insurance company and backing that up with tax dollars that will lose 30% to insurance company graft is a crime to my way of thinking. Not to mention, just where is this going to go? People caught driving unisured lose driving privileges. What are people caught living uninsured going to lose? Living privileges? May I remind my government, while driving may be called a privilege, living is a right guaranteed by the founders.
Nothing so clearly demonstrates the sell out underway than Speaker of the House Pelosi, upon abandoning the public option, suddenly having a fundraiser thrown for Pelosi by a health insurance lobbyist. That’s not even subtle. And do not fall for talk about a trigger either, trigger in this context is another word for joke.
