I say if we get enoug peope to switch to the public option, then we can ban the privatization of any health companies and the entire system will be under the taxpayer's control instead of the special interest of autocratic organizations which funnel the earning into unethical business practices and umbrella corps worldwide.
Government could have done a lot in the last twenty years or so if they had really been so concerned with such profits. And I feel the Insurance companies will survive and get a share of the pie. In a way, I think Congress helped them. I believe I had read that their was a clause in there that would prevent any new insurance companies from popping up. Lessen the competition may be the name of this game.
These fellows were not stupid. You have to give them credit. They didn't get to be where they were by being country bumpkins. They understood politics, they understood mass psychology and they played their cards exceedingly well.... And then at the insistence of Paul Warburg who was forever the master strategist, they added several very sound provisions to the Federal Reserve Bill...Warburg's associates said, "Paul, what are you doing? We don't want those in there this is our bill." And his response was this, he said, "Relax fellas, don't you get it? Our object is to get the bill passed. We can fix it up later." Those were his exact words. "We can fix it up later." He was so right. It was because of those provisions that they won over the support of William Jennings Bryan the head of the Populist Movement, the last hold-out against the bill. Bryan was concerned that this would be an instrument for ruining the nation's money supply but when he saw those provisions he said, "Oh well, those are good provisions, I guess I can support the bill now" never dreaming that this was temporary. Everything is temporary in politics. When people go to sleep things can get changed
Warburg was right and they fixed it up later. The Federal Reserve Act since it was passed has been amended over 100 times. Every one of those provisions were long ago removed and many more have been added which greatly expand the power and reach of the Federal Reserve System to create money out of nothing. With this kind of professional strategy and deception these people were real professionals and the public didn't stand a chance.

Who do you really think is going to be in CHARGE of this program - THE INSURANCE COMPANIES of course.
After all both elite parties in the nation has been the ones driving this nation to the groups because of their addiction to lobbyist sucking pimps
So, you can stop whining about socialized health care, because you do not have socialized health care, what you have is corporate fascism.
You know, while we are at it, why are we giving our roads away? I mean any Tom Dick or Harry can just drive or walk down any street they like? Why are we spending money on such waste as Departments of Transportation? Why does our tax money go to such "entitlement" programs like Water and Sewer?
Up for grabs at the negotiating table is worldwide privatization and deregulation of public energy and water utilities, postal services, higher education and state alcohol distribution controls; a new right for foreign firms to obtain U.S. Small Business Administration loans; elimination of a list of specific U.S. state laws about land use, professional licensing and consumer protections, and extreme deregulation of private-sector service industries such as insurance, banking, mutual funds and securities. www.commondreams.org...
It is therefore not surprising that another hat that Maurice Strong has worn is that of Treasurer, now Fellow, of Lindesfarne, New York, whose founder, William Thompson, conceived it as a medieval village into which the remnants of humanity might be herded as a feudalist "concentration camp," once genocidal eco-facist policies of the sort advocated by Maurice Strong had taken hold. And, for good measure, Strong is the president of the World Economic Forum, the Davos, Switzerland annual summit of the world's private bankers', which will be keynoted this year by Vice President Al Gore.

I am just actually surprised congress is working on a saturday night. Isn't that when they take their mistresses out?
by Angiras....Insurance Companies, and Pharmaceuticals. These are the entities that Congress is devoted to protecting and supporting, not the American public. This whole "social welfare" program, supposedly designed to help the poor and uninsured is just a cover. The real intent of this bill is to destroy the middle class, by draining off more of its dwindling disposable income, ,,,
