    Dean:Health Bill gutted or Obama needs faux legacy for his one term presidency

    Dean

    "This is a bigger bailout for the insurance industry than AIG," former Democratic National Committee chairman and medical doctor Howard Dean told "Good Morning America's" George Stephanopoulos today. "A very small number of people are going to get any insurance at all, until 2014, if the bill works.

    "We've gotten to this stage ... in Washington where passing any bill is a victory, and that's the problem," Dean said. "Decisions are being about the long-term future of this country for short-term political reasons, and that's never a good sign."




    In the Democrats' desire to give something/ anything with the words "health care" on it to give Papa Obama a fake win, they have sacrificied alot of things

    For example, even seniors:

    How many seniors have to be 'sacrificed' so as to give Papa Obama some kind of legacy for his one term presidency or when is half a trillion cuts good for you- when the MSM and the left say so

    CBO: Medicare Cuts Could “Reduce Access To Care Or Diminish The Quality Of Care.” (CBO Director Doug Elmendorf, Letter To Sen. Harry Reid, 11/18/09, P. 1, 17)

    MORE THAN $40 BILLION CUT FROM HOME HEALTH AGENCIES

    (CBO, E-mail To Senate Leadership Staff, 11/20/09)

    NEARLY $15 BILLION IN CUTS TO NURSING HOMES

    (CBO, E-mail To Senate Leadership Staff, 11/20/09)

    NEARLY $8 BILLION FROM HOSPICES

    (CBO, E-mail To Senate Leadership Staff, 11/20/09)

    Never believed i would agree with Mr Dean on much of anything. But this so called health Bill has lost it's meaning and needs to be 100% scrapped.

    Haha... I was just thinking the same thing. Never thought I would agree with Dean...

    His point is spot on though and it applies to both parties who want to pass legislation for the sake of 'doing something' with little or no concern about its actual effects.
