    Same way Jeffry Imelt became the Jobs Czar to discover his company sent $2 Bn in jobs to China the same time he was selected. Same way Holder was selected to be Atty General only to give terrorist drug lords 200 huge guns, a couple of which were used to kill America's border patrol agents. Same way a guy who failed to turn in his income tax became IRS head.

    Obama's cue to draft people seems to be graft in his field. But what would I know? I'm just a Republican voter.

    Not sure how anyone can defend this, or pretend that ACA isn't us getting fucked.

    It has always been that way.
    Another example is proponents for wars in Iraq, and elsewhere. Their interests and loyalty is with the defense industry.

    Moyers is great and tells the truth about many topics. The focus of this one is very well documented, but the sheep are left to argue against their own interests as always. There is a solution but the citizenry have been conditioned to think it's a radical one, and laws have been implemented to safe guard the elite hierarchy against peasant revolt.

    So, you didn't actually read the article? Or even the OP for that matter.

    Yeah, it's Liz Fowler's fault there's no public option. That and math.
