The Health Care Battle

This battle has been getting more poisonous over time. The Republicans keep spewing lies out of whatever orifice would make the most noise, and Obama patiently attempts to debunk them out of his mouth. In the meantime, the bill itself continues to get watered down in a vain attempt to get bipartisan support that plainly is not coming. Conservatives seem to have thrown out that page of their narrow dictionary.

For what it's worth (nothing), I say we make the entire system single-payer. It's simple, it's cheaper, and it means that I, a freelancer, get the health care that I probably need. At the very least, we could cut the Insurance companies down to non=profit organizations. No other country allows insurers to draw a profit from sick people.

Let it be said I never demonized anyone who didn't do anything wrong.
