The Truth about health care Reform that Congress doesn't want you to know

While people are fighting and protesting government health care Reform they don't understand that this not about government run health care. That the misguided believe to keep people fighting against any reform that offers A Public Option without public option is not going to be a health care reform for the needy and poor.

It's a Shame that in Washington our Politicians no only had sold their souls to private interest, but also they no longer care for the well being of the voters in the nation.

While many in the GOP are fattening their pockets with private interest campaign money the rest in Congress that are as guilty when they don't call for investigations of how the private insurance business are dictating how America health care reform is going to become a more profiting business for them.

A national shame: when corporate interests trump those of the American people

Is not the Health care Reform what should be protested, but all those corrupted congress members that are selling the American people well being in favor of killing public choice for private insurance control.


What we are witnessing taking place in the U.S. Congress is repulsive and revolting; the fact that many of our elected representatives are blatantly and shamelessly stuffing their pockets with campaign contributions from health care corporations when, at the same time, they have been charged with the responsibility to develop effective legislation for health care reform. This is a massive conflict of interest and a failure of these legislators to uphold their oath of office. It is a disgrace to this nation and its people, a national shame.


Like the article said this nothing but a disgrace to the American people and voter and a national shame

Learn the facts people stop fighting for the wrong reason and learn that our politicians and those opposing to public option while selling us to the mandatory private insurance Option are a disgrace to this nation.

The GOP is showing its true colors and the Masters behind the GOP are the ones creating all the propaganda to make the Reform fail.


The GOP, attached by the hip to their corporate masters, long ago lost its shame and conscience, so it is not the least bit surprising that Republicans are refusing to support any reform legislation. They are bought and paid for so it bothers them not a bit. But, even worse than the stance of the Republicans on this issue, is the behavior of the special group of Democrats referred to as the Blue Dogs in the House and those referred to as the Gang of Six in the Senate. These rogue Democrats are not only refusing to promote the interests of the majority of the American people but they are failing to adhere to their own party's platform that specifically calls for health care reform.


But Remember that the Democrat party is nothing but another puppet also, and their weakness to stand in favor of the American people is also a shame and a disgrace.

One of the biggest lies the GOP has told over the years is that the richest nation the world has ever seen does not have the money to go around...all while selling tax cuts and bailouts to corporations (who take the money and eliminate jobs here) and to the already wealthy...meanwhile the average guy gets screwed without even a kiss or a good lube first.

We have known for years what is going on in government, Grover, we as the people has lost our power a long time ago, amid the merry money go around in congress of private funds.

Even I, was fighting the wrong thing in the beginning of the health care reform, after reading and researching I understand now what the whole pony show is all about.

All those protest are indeed financed and pushed by the big insurance businesses to keep the people completely oblivious of their take over.

Any Reform without public option for anybody to chose regardless of income is not reform at all.

Likewise any Reform that only offers private insurance option mandatory is nothing but a win, win situation for private insurance because that means is not options to choose from but private run ones.

People needs to stop fighting for the wrong reasons and take a hard and long look of what is going on behind Americans voters back in Washington.

While I was very happy that people took to the streets in Washington to protest health care reform I am Afraid that it was pushed by private insurance and not by the concerns of real Americans that understand what is at stake here.

Another power grab by corporate American at the expenses of mandatory insurance that only have a private option to chose from.

Wake up America we have been deceived once again.

If the government mandates that everybody must purchase health insurance, and there is no public option to keep them honest, the health insurance companies will clean up and provide no better coverage than they do now.

They've done much the same with the Medicare Part D "reform" that requires everybody on Medicare to buy insurance to cover their prescription drug costs. By the time you pay the insurance premiums, with their "doughnut holes" (after your drugs cost more than about $1,2000 a year they don't cover you anymore), you end up with maybe $1,000 a year in benefits. If the government just provided aid for drug costs directly to the people they would get more benefits and pay less.

The GOP made Medicare reform into a free-for-all for the insurance companies and they're trying to do the same with health care. They are all in the pocket of big corporate interests. Meantime, they claim to be working for the people of America.

A lot of us have seen the light.

And it never ceases to amaze me how many people the manage to dupe! The townhall meetings re: healthcare reform were a pain to hear about.

If I live in one state why can't I get insurance from another?

Let us have that option!

An open market keeps insurance companies honest. It would also prevent a BIG Government power grab.

It's Economics 101. More competition benefits both consumer and business. Business can't compete against an entity that doesn't mind losing money...ie BIG government

That is naive RR.

The corporate devouring of the market place has reduced choice for the consumer for one and the history of the past few years has proven it doesn't keep them honest either.

You are right competition does help with more choices, but the whole problem is that what is been done in Washington is nothing more than another bill that will be rammed up to the butts of tax payer as a mandatory bill.

Meaning without public option it will be no reform but more power grab for private insurance.

This turning just like the way the car insurance business got their money gravy train at the expenses of the consumer and still is expensive and mandatory.

From the beginning this had nothing to do with government run health care but to bailout the private insurance with a mandatory insurance bill.

Insurers admit 50,000 employees lobbying Congress to claim profits fair

With this many lobbyist in working behind congress you know exactly who the bill is going to benefit, and sadly is not going to be any of us.


A spokesman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry’s trade group, admitted in an article published Monday that as many as 50,000 industry employees are involved in an effort to fight back against aggressive health care reform


Their job is to kill public option so they can become the sole providers of insurance in the Nation, nothing but more monopoly as eventually big insurance will absorb the small one and prices will be monopolized by them

So you people really actually support the 1,000+ page healthcare reform bill that is being pushed right now? It's either a YES or NO.

Once the bill was made mandatory and private option was eliminated I knew I was smelling a rat, but people has been fighting for the wrong reasons and they have no clue what is heading their way.

I support HR 676, which is the single payer bill. But HR 3200, with a strong public option, is better than nothing.

I agree, that is what reform is all about, giving more power to the public, but as the Republicans are now against public option this is become nothing but Reform at all.

Still Obamas version of public option is not to be considered until after the first bill is passed giving more power to private insurance first over the choices of the public.

Obama publicly said that if the private premiums are not lowered or the private insurance doesn't become affordable then he will introduce the public option.

But that is deceiving as public option is only for extreme cases and will not be for people that the government deem in financial stress.

So nothing but a joke as public option should be available for anybody regardless of financial situation in order to make private insurance more competitive.
