Rant: Health Care
By: David Phillips
June 22, 2009
watched the movie Sicko last Friday, the Michael Moore movie about healthcare and I think Congress should ALL be forced to
watch it before anyone says another thing about healthcare and how Universal Healthcare in other countries such as Canada
and Britain provide poor coverage, because it’s just the opposite...
In fact those that say that Universal healthcare is
a failure in those countries such as Fox News and Right wing talking head spinners are paid to say that, they don’t
want you to know the truth…There is no profit in the truth…
And with the way things are in Congress, we probably
will not get a Government Public health care option for Americans because the healthcare industry lobbyists have taken over
this issue and the f%king Democrats are a bigger problem than the Republicans in Congress...
We are going to end up spending another trillion, let
me rephrase that, we are going to give away another trillion to the healthcare industry and get nothing in return for it...
The NUMBER ONE issue for me the last several years has
been a public health care system to compete with the rip-offs who have everyone bending over and grabbing their ankles when
they need to get permission from HMO’s and bean counters to have some routine or non-routine procedure or test done...
During the Bush regime in 2005 the CBO said that by
2012, 150 million Americans will no longer be able to afford the extortion prices we are forced to pay if we want a health
care plan...During 2007 89 million Americans went without any coverage for part or all of that year...
Universal Health care would be the best possible stimulus
for our economy both for business owners and workers because the competition would lower the premiums that Health Insurance
companies currently extort...
If Obama cannot get this done right ( a Public Health
Care Option) with the numbers the Democrats now have in Congress, in my opinion, even if the
economy has gained back all the losses that we have seen and the loses we are going to have over the next year or so, President
Obama will not win a second term in office…
You know, people lately have been saying that Obama
has been on TV too much, maybe so, but it is time for him to use his bully pulpit and start naming names of those in Congress
who are obstructing Health Care, including Democrats...Obama has got to know that this issue will make or break his chance
for a second term so he will have nothing to lose if he pisses off the Democrats because the Democrats are the problem (and
lobbyists), and they certainly don't seem to care about pissing off the President...
If not now Mr. President, it will never happen…As
you once said; this is the time we all have been waiting for…
Don’t let us down…
