    What's that? The Health Insurance Industry doesn't have Americans best interest in mind?

    Daily Dose - Lobbyists Spend Millions to Influence Health Care

    Hmm, I wonder who our politicians would take for sides? Those of the people they represent and their best interests? Or the best interests of the ones pouring them millions of dollars in campaign contributions? :eusa_think:

    Industry Donations Directed To Key Senators - Kaiser Health News

    :eusa_think:

    Political Affairs Magazine - Drug Lobby Spends $1 Billion, Study Finds
    What is this? The Republicans and the President sided with the Pharmaceutical Industry and Big Business? You don't say! :eek:

    What!? You're telling me that Medicare has become worse over time perhaps to the fact that Medicare recipients had their benefits reduced by Republicans? No! :eek:

    But wait! Tactics time! Lets attack the fiends who dare say this about Republicans!

    Center for Public Integrity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Wait, you mean a center that has been accused of being right wing is saying this about Republicans? :eek:

    And no, it's not just Republicans digging their hands into the piggy bank, not by any means.

    Amazing how Obama has run into problems within his own party on this issue huh? :eusa_eh:

    And surprise surprise:


    Moral of the Story: So those who disapprove of the Health Care proposal currently trying to be passed, remember those who oppose it but most of all WHY. Do you honestly believe these politicians have your best interest in mind? Or the bottom line of the companies that are acting like a piggy bank for these politicians?

    Call your local Congressperson, tell them you want this madness to end. This is not only your futures at stake here, but your children's and children's future generations. Let this issue be debated by it's merits, not partisan hackery attacks that as you can see is encouraged by the Health Insurance Companies. They don't want this issue to be debated, they want it to die out by flexing their political muscle which is clearly shown by the backlash by politicians who are getting contributions from these companies.

    For those who just reference the economy in this debate if we had actually followed the Canadian single payer format:

    First-of-Its Kind Study: Medicare for All (Single-Payer) Reform Would Be Major Stimulus for Economy with 2.6 Million New Jobs, $317 Billion in Business Revenue, $100 Billion in Wages
