US Health Care Lobby Pumps Millions into Obama Plan
In the “debate” over health care, key figures on congressional committees are being bankrolled by health insurers, while representatives of
hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry are being consulted at White House meetings.
Any responsibility for employers to provide coverage will be marginalized, with token penalties for noncompliance. And a government-administered
“public option”—if it is indeed even offered—will do nothing to alter the overall trajectory of the plan as far as ordinary Americans are
concerned. It will be a cut-rate, class-based system providing inferior, rationed care based on cost-cutting “efficiencies.”
Read for the juicy details. Why don't people get that the insurance industry still gets payed in a government option, even single payer.
While the health care industry’s unabashed wooing of Senator Baucus stands out, he is not alone. The health care lobby gave nearly $170 million
to Washington politicians in 2007 and 2008, with 54 percent of this going to Democrats.
Both parties are bought and paid for.
Heres another interesting article:
Drug Lobby Demands, and gets, Obama Administration Pledge to Protect Health Care
The Obama White House has acknowledged it made a deal with drug makers to block moves in Congress to obtain any cost savings beyond the $80
billion already agreed to by the pharmaceutical lobby.
In an industry that generates annual US sales of more than $300 billion, the $80 billion is minimal. The more likely scenario is that $80 billion
will be more than offset by the increased profits the pharmaceutical industry stands to make on prescriptions purchased by new patients under
insurance coverage that they would be mandated to purchase under the new health care legislation.
This one says it all really:
The deal is further evidence of the corporate forces calling the shots in Obama’s health care overhaul. While touring the country claiming the
plan will make the health care giants’ “honest,” the administration is cutting behind-the-scenes deals to protect and boost their
The insurance companies have seen this coming and know what they're doing. Do you really think they'd be pushing for this bill if it weren't good
for them? They made large contributions to both pres campaigns.
Obama is masquerading as a socialist when in fact he is a controlled wall street banker/insurer sock-puppet. Just look at all the CFR, Trilateral
Commission, and Bilderburgers in his cabinet. Lets just say it's a large proportion.
He's a total corporate-fascist minion, the biggest fraud of the century.
