This bill cannot be passed fast enough. My parents own a small business, and thus have to pay for their insurance. My dad's policy costs over
$20,000/ year due to a preexisting condition. He has atrial fibrillation, but is very healthy in terms of daily exercise, eating lots of fish, and a
general knowledge and adherence to a healthy lifestyle. Of course, none of this matters to health insurance companies, who only view people as a means
to an increased profit.
Sure this bill could be better, but Palin and the other misleading fear-mongers who spread the propaganda of the health industrial complex tricked
people into bashing proposals that would have lead to better care at a reduced cost. The health insurance companies fear competition, and want a
system of socialism for corporations, at the expense of capitalism for you and me.
Look at where our current system has left us. We, right now, pay drastically more for a system that yields pure mediocrity:
**RIGHT CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO VIEW, AS THE USA PAYS SO MUCH PER CAPITA THAT IT DOESN'T EVEN SHOW-UP....**
This bill is a starting point, and can be modified to become even better for the citizens of America. It really is undeniable that a single-payer
system is the only one that can both dramatically contain costs and maintain a good standard of care. The problem with the bill is not that it is
socialistic, and anyone who says so is illustrating that they should not be looked to as a source of worthwhile information. However, the bill, in my
opinion, is a net positive.
It looks like some people are starting to understand that yelling about 'freedom,' which allows corporatism to spread our cheeks for a couple bucks
is not freedom at all. Capitalism is one thing, but corporatism is entirely another. Do not be fooled into giving up your own self-interest so that
corporations can control and profit off of your loss on individual rights.
CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE, AND THUS ARE NOT ENDOWED WITH CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS AND RIGHTS. THE RIGHT TO A CORPORATE CHARTER SHOULD BE EARNED,
