I wish what he said two years ago was what we'd get now. Sadly, Obama apparently is willing to let even a public option fail, leaving me wondering what exactly the point of this health care bill will be.

A UHC system or a public/private split would save us money, but we can't have that. A system based on evidence would save lives and money, but we can't have that. A system that treats "being healthy" as a human right, and not as the exclusive privilege of the wealthy, would give average Americans peace of mind, but we can't have that.

It's so frustrating to see Republicans so mobilized to defeat reform on purely, demonstrably false, factless, cruel grounds when the bills being written preserve the status quo and allow private insurance, drug companies, and doctors to suck working Americans dry.

This is exactly like Bill Clinton's attempt at Healthcare Reform, except with a heaping dollop of racism. The Right goes wild and convinces people to vote against their own interests in favor of insurance corporations. Meanwhile, the media cheerleads and applauds the stupidity.

This should be a SLAM DUNK and yet we're losing traction.

Who here doesn't have a private insurance horror story?

Exactly. One of the bigger problems that progressives have is getting the media traction to explain/ advertise for our side, and what the real truth is. Of course the so-called MSM is corporate owned and run, so they are looking out solely for their own interests.

Some of the "little people" of the Repub party do sort of get that, but their fear is that if we don't let the obscenely wealthy become even more obscenely wealthy, then there won't be any more jobs, much less any more health care.

I actually can understand the "logic" of this argument, but of course, it is flawed and not real. We already have a public option with many goods & services, including Medicare, the VA and the TriCare military health care system, and those are hardly destroying the private insurance sector & jobs.

All this would do is limit somewhat the ability of Big Ins CEOs to continue ripping all of us off to the tune of millions of bucks. It's digusting.

I have been paying into Big Ins for years, and all I am seeing is my premiums skyrocketing, my deductibles skyrocketing, and I have genuine concern about what I would actually "get" if, the gawds forbid, I get really ill or I'm in a bad accident. I hear horror stories all the time.

I'm not sure what the answer is. I do see the progressive side of the story getting out MORE this time than when the Clintons attempted it. Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman, et al, should get awards for what they've done so far in terms of getting the truth out there. I actually hear a few truths being told in the msm that I didn't hear the last time.

But the shouters and the bullies seem to be pushing the agenda, along with the fact that I'm so sure that Big Ins is BUYING OFF as many of our elected reps & Senators as possible on both sides of the aisle.

Pigs at the trough. disgusting. none of them give a $hite about their constituents, and that's for darn sure. That's what the rightards don't get. They are being used, but they've been brainwashed into seeing us as the brain-dead morans. The right is very good at that.

We, here, need to keep on doing what we can to push this through. Call your reps & Senators and keep and pushing.
