    Health Insurers Pour Money into GOP Campaigns, Hoping to Limit New Regulations - latimes.com


    Money talks I always say. Republican and heavily right leaning people don't care about the people they care only about the insurance companies who have bought them off, lol. Notice it really isn't the millions of the masses are that are discontented its really the insurance companies, we all know what the masses think:


    The Associated Press: AP Poll: Many think health overhaul should do more



    And we know know what the Republicans want:


    "The industry would love to have a Republican Congress," said Wendell Potter, a former executive at Cigna Corp., one of the country's biggest insurers. "They were very, very successful during the years of Republican domination in Washington."


    And



    "Insurers in the past have been able to count on the GOP, which often helped shape the market to the industry's specifications.

    Republicans expanded Medicare's use of commercial insurance companies to administer benefits, which has been very profitable for insurers
    . With the help of GOP legislation, insurers also have increasingly shifted costs to consumers through high-deductible plans.

    And Republicans have pushed to allow insurance companies to sell their plans across state lines, avoiding state regulations. Party leaders have made that a centerpiece of their 2011 healthcare agenda."


    Basically as we can see, Republicans care more about making the insurance companies more profitable and not the masses that have no access to health care, the accusations of the health care bill being socialist and communist is just a political somkescreen to cover up the obvious.

    Blacks have been told to call anyone who opposes National Healthcare as "racist". Bass is just obeying orders.

    Little flaw in your scenario Bass. How do Republicans get into office to begin with? Voters decide. The voters don't want your horribly written healthcare law. Also, how do you justify Democratic contributions from said health industry sources? What a joke.

    While they will deny it, likely even to themselves, the posts by Mad Scientist and Tank directly above are racist comments and suggest both authors are themselves racists.
    I'm not suggesting they are sheet wearing racists, I am suggesting their words demonstrate ignorance when modified by "all".
    Not all blacks are on welfare
    Not all welfare mothers are black
    Not all black women are welfare moms.

    I hold the conservative blue collar poster in disdain. But never do I suggest they are all stupid - though some clearly are; nor do I suggest that they all live in trailer parks (some clearly live at home with their mom).

    What Mad Scientist and Tank do is continue the climate of hate and fear, because they hate and fear. Isn't that what motivates blue collar Republicans - hate and fear? Listen to their mentors - Palin and Gingrich to name only two - what do they offer but hate and fear (of course "greed is good" too)?
