Healthcare: a Christmas Present of Epic Proportions
Half a loaf? No, worse. Here is your pre-Christmas present — a big lump of coal. Let me simplify and make clear my assertion. You are ill, in need of medical care. You want the best. Whose wise counsel and help do you seek? You want someone who is sympathetic, skilled and competent.
This debate has never been about Health. Certainly not your health. For the last six months I have steadfastly maintained the large insurance racketeers will not lose this one. They have thrown all their money into the ring. It has paid off handsomely. Their paid surrogates have performed well. Like their Wall Street kin, the pirates have won again. Robert Reich pulls no punches:
In other words, the private insurers are winning and the public is losing.
Pharmaceutical companies are winning as well.
