The most lucrative job in Washington these days just might be health care lobbyist -- as prominent interest groups announce plans to pour millions of dollars into fighting over President Obama's efforts to create a universal health care system.

Companies in the health industry spent $3.4 Billion ($3,409,779,232) lobbying the U.S. Congress over the last 10 years.


The U.S. Congress has started deliberation on reforming the healthcare system in the U.S. Thier goal is to implement their plan by 2013. It's likely that we will see the economy continue to deteriorate over the next 3 years, following the great depression timeline, as the pressure is increased upon the nation to change.

Unfortunatly Congress couldn't legislate themselves out of a paper bag.

They haven't realized yet that they need to trash the entire system. Get rid of Medicare, Medicaid, Department of Indian affairs medical care, Military healthcare, and Federal employee healthcare.

Employers, state and local governments will be able pass along savings on products, services and taxes if they are able to get rid of workmans compensation, healthcare premiums and 50 different healthcare programs for the poor.

Auto liability insurance would get cheaper as well. After all isn't it all about paying other people's medical bills?

They also need to limit the amount that the lawyers can sue for and limit phamecuetical profits.

Only then can they reform the system.

With a functioning basic system for the masses private insurers could provide paying customers (Rich or well off people) with a fast lane to better quality service at competitive pricing.

So as you can see, this will never happen in a million years. America is completly incapable of working together to provide for it's citizens. The whole system must fail, before we can see any improvement.

I vote for anarchy.

No system is better than the dysfuntional system that we have now.

Have any disease infested blankets or golf club covers we could give them as a token of our appreciation? Since they are congregating to phuk us over this would be an excellent opportunity to spread their form of love around.

This is what is destroying democracy in america. BRIBERY. Everyone in congress and on the Supreme Court collects milllions of $ a year by selling their vote to businesses. It's why we have wars and why the mexican border is not sealed and it's bribery that determines what health care plan we will get.

We'll likely end up with a healthcare system that will benifit the captains of corporate America and Wall Street, while the majority of taxpayers get bent over.
