I just watched the Senators wax poetic about the healthcare bill they are about to pass. Harkin did bring a lump to my throat when he spoke about Teddy and his assistant that still carried the torch for healthcare for all after Teddy died.
I do not call it a ‘reform’ bill because it does so fucking little in that regard. I still consider the bulk of it to be corporate welfare for the insurance companies. Fucking bendejo’s do not need another handout..they have more than their share of those sumbitches.
Invoking Teddy’s name really kinda pisses me off too..this bill is that shitty.
So kiss my hairy ass you bunch of fucking bought bastards. You do not honor Kennedy’s legacy with this friggin bill. Not even close.
When I saw Obama’s press conference the other day, I wondered if any of the medical professional’s that support single payer were in the group.
Seems they were not invited, per The Real News Network video below:
First off, you can read the 223 page bill here.
Below is Anthony Weiner on Countdown last night, discussing the horseshit bill coming out of the Senate Finance Committee.
Rep Weiner is a truly wonderful progressive member of the House. I want this man to run for President..seriously.
In this NYT article, three economists grade the Finance committee bill. One is Dean Baker, who I read regularly.
None of the three give Baucus’s bill a passing grade.
Heavy sigh my friend..heavy-fucking sigh..
And what it is, is this:
The majority of Dem’s in the Senate don’t give a shit what is IN the healthcare bill, they just want to pass A BILL. Nan Pelosi is on the same fucking page in the House of Rep’s. And if Rahm speaks for the Pres, Obama doesn’t give a rat’s ass what is in it either.
Twenty three worthless Blue Dogs will not vote for a bill w/the public option in it. One hundred progressive rep’s will not vote for a bill without the public option.
Ten to twenty million people will still not have health care insurance according to Lawrence.
And I fucking believe him. Because when Obama is pressed, he admits not all American’s will have health insurance. He won’t give a number..but he has admitted it several times in the last few months.
It’s getting harder and harder to support Democrats for me. It’s even harder to support Obama at this juncture. This issue is very important to millions of American’s, including me.
I am tired of friends and loved-ones dying from a lack of health insurance. Or, dying because their health insurance provider won’t pay for specific procedures that might save them or at the very least make what’s left of their lives comfortable.
Healthcare is rationed now people..fuck Sarah Palin and her buddies. Fuck all those selfish bastards that could give two shits if everyone in America has access to affordable healthcare, as long as they have healthcare.
I will vote for my cat in lieu of Democrats, after supporting the damn public option instead of universal, single-payer healthcare…only to see it fall by the wayside. I shit you not. I will not support another Democratic asshole if we get hosed on this lousy-ass public option.
I leave for Sandy Eggo at six a.m. tomorrow for a week. But..I will have internet..so you aren’t rid of me that easily.
