Dear America, are you sick? Want to get sicker? Here's the way to do it today. Accept that Congress and the President want to help you. Guess what, they want to help their friends at AARP and giant health insurance company help you. Oh, oh.... wait a minute.. am I saying that giant health insurance companies want to cross state lines? Am I saying they want governmental healthcare? Am I saying they will benefit? Of course I am. Governmental healthcare of any form will actually increase the profits of giant American health insurance companies. How, you might ask, because they will be given huge government contracts to "administer" health care. They will actually make more profits off the government "administration fees" than they do the current "insurance premiums less healthcare claims = profit/loss" methods of today's free market. Do I have your ATTENTION!!! AMERICA???

They are not listening. They want their "reform". Too bad it's not really reform but subsidization instead.

You left out big pharma..they got some sweet deals too with this bill.

The Senate is voting on a sham of a bill under the guidance of the drug and insurance industry. They are voting to see how much richer we will make them and how fast the money will get there.

There's only one way to reform health insurance and that's a single payer system. It will put money back in the pockets of consumers and it will give small business a chance at survival.

The Democrats have done an outstanding job of making all business owners Republicans which is simply not true. Most of America's really rich are Kennedy's, Rockefellers, etc. Industrialists, Banks, and Oligopolists are Democrats, not Republicans because they make their billions from government contracts and tax benefits.
