Screwed Again!

I don't know if it will do any good at all, but you'd all better contact your senators and congressmen, because the health care reform that we all set our hopes on has been emasculated and poisoned.

Or, as one of the talking heads has said, "It's not health, it's not care, and it's not reform."

It's millions of Americans served up to the insurance companies on a silver platter.

Single payer: killed.

Public option: killed.

Extension of Medicare: killed.

So we are left with a load of crap. Oh, on one hand they say that they can no longer reject people for pre-existing conditions...but they can charge them a lot more than other people. They can't refuse older people...but they can charge them more than younger people. They can't enforce a lifetime benefit cap...but they can enforce an annual cap.

And they are going to make it a law that we have to buy into this crap...unless we can prove we can't afford it.

That's it in a nutshell.

Thanks to a lot of assholes (cough--Joe Lieberman--cough) who forgot that they were elected by US and not by insurance companies.

Maybe the Repugnicans are right...maybe the Democrats can't legislate their way out of a wet paper bag! How can they let this happen, with one of the largest majorities in years? When they were elected for the purpose of reforming health care.

They suck and we're fucked.

Olbermann asked Scrooge's question: "Are these the shadows of things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only?"

I think it's time to scream and yell.


  1. Scream, yell, cry, write your rep and your congressman, though John Carter (US Congressman for District 31) won't vote FOR anything a Black and/or a Democrat president proposes until Hell freezes over. Carter is a bigot and an idiot.

  2. Agreed. Still, there are others...I have readers in other states...

  3. Sadly I'm not surprised. VERY disappointed, not surprised.

  4. I am LIVID! We elected these guys to reform health care, and they say, it is...reform in name only and...SURPRISE! We're gonna MAKE you buy it!

  5. This is loathsome- and my hatred for Liebermann knows no bounds. I never thought I'd say that. But, hey, where are most of the insurance companies in this country based? Big f-in' surprise, CT!

    These idiots in the Senate should just wait for Feb., instead of pushing this through right now (Happy F-ed Christmas, indeed!)- just wait til Coakley sits for Mass. in Ted's old seat- that's the extra vote they need. And screw Liebermann! And double-screw Nelson! I still have some hope that the Good Ladies of Maine buck their assh*le "Leadership". There's 2 more, if they want to be on the right side of history on this one, not to mention their constituents, who can do math and aren't stupid!

  6. Just sent my first email to Sen. Reid- come on folks! We can do it!
