HEALTH CARE REFORM ODDS AND ENDS
Posted by politicalpartypooper on July 30, 2009
According to the Center For Responsive Politics, Pharma and Insurance lobbyists spent over $107 Million dollars in the second quarter of 2009. By contrast, the Securities & Investment Industry spent only $21 Million. Both industries are facing overhauls. One industry nearly destroyed our economy, and the other is hellbent on finishing the job. But pay no mind. All that money being given to elected officials has nothing to do with the overhauls that are supposed to be taking place.
Republicans in the House and Senate have been stating that they want to fix our health care system, only they want Democrats to admit that our system is the greatest system in the world, first. Wait a minute…
In other news, the Democratic health care plan apparently includes the Final Solution. Somehow, Democrats have resurrected Adolf Hitler, and his merry henchmen, Goebbels, and Himmler, and we’re all invited to Die Endlösung.
Republicans continue to lie about their desire to fix the entire system, claiming that between 2000 and 2006, they never had the time to deal with our ailing health care system. Yeah, because the Do-nothing Congress had better things to do. Instead, they planned all along to wait for the Democrats to bring it up, so that they could finally work arm in arm with their political brothers in solving this most sensitive of issues.
And they also want you to divert your eyes from all of the dollars they are raking in from Health Insurers and Pharma. They claim that insurers only want what’s best for the American health care system…or was that; they only want the best part of the profit from the American health care system? Either way, Republicans are bending over forward to make sure they get it.
Just because our elected officials are given millions of dollars each year from industries involved in obvious conflicts of interests is no reason to suspect our Senators and Congresspeople of being on the take. Just because for decades upon decades those industries have pretty much received what they wanted is no reason to believe anything CRIMINAL is occurring. Right, Senator Boehner?
