Are you discouraged by the lack of reform contained in the health care bill for whatever reason?
It is ashame how many small minded conservative politicians work for the insurance companies and not the american people..
It is pretty much what I expected and predicted. It is dissapointing though.
Its better than nothing, and we can push through reform in pieces. No chance of sweeping real reform. But the Dems will reign in the healthcare insurance providers. More so than if the GOP were in charge.
But I agree, it is lame and disappointing. But hey, its only year one. Lots more bills to pass.
It was never about healthcare, as has now been proved. It has always been about control. Yet again, we find that the people who swear to defend the Constitution not only do not take that oath seriously, they don't even know what's in the fucking document.
Neither do you.
Its a very liberal document and if you understood it, you would understand that healthcare reform is our governments responsibility.
Its like the bible. You may have read it but that doesn't mean you get it. You have a right wing spin on the constitution???
And we lost. The Healthcare giants won. They have the control. Corporations won, again! Happy?
Yea, it was never about healthcare. It was never about healthcare companies denying coverage, or not covering pre existing conditions, or price gouging, or the millions who have lost their health insurance, or the fact that they campaigned on healthcare reform because WE TOLD THEM we want healthcare reform.
It was never about the costs going up 191% in 6 years. Nah! That didn't hurt anyone. That was ok. Just like $4 gas was ok. It crashed our economy. Well, we spend too much of our GDP on healthcare. Arguing with righties is futile because they blow off all our facts and just continue to spew their nonsense.
The politicians didn't decide to take on the healthcare industry, we told them to. And now the minority party, liberman, the lobbyists and the media put a squash on real reform. Happy?
I understand that the framers of said document were adequately aware of the need for health care, since Ben Franklin was one of them and he was responsible for the first public hospital in the country. I understand that they did not include one word about government responsibility to care for the health of each and every American.
It is our congresscritters - and, apparently, the koolaid liberals - who appear unable to comprehend the original 4 whole pages that founded this nation.
If you think this is a victory for the healthcare industry, then you're an even bigger idiot than you appear to be. Who won? The government - all they want is control - they don't actually care what is in the bill. If they did, they would have fought for the original principles, not sold it for votes. The democrats have the fucking majority.
I'm discouraged that there is government involvement in health care at all.
Yep, just end Medicare, Medicaid, CHIPS, VA Medical care, FDA, CDC, etc.
And close all county health departments.
And above all if someone comes into an emergency room with no insurance do not pay for their care with government money.
