WE NEED HEALTHCARE REFORM, YET TODAY OBAMA IS PUSHING INSURANCE REFORM, 8 NEW RULES FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES..THAT IS NOT HEALTHCARE FOR ALL.

So today I went to the Whitehouse Blog, and it's odd because I have gotten NO Healthcare updates from the Obama Administration since I submitted my story and FIVE dollar Donation for his Health Care Pursuit 2.5 weeks ago. NADA...Nothing, not a single murmur. So today I went to the Whitehouse blog- and wow, really strange- NOW NEW RULES are being pursued ? "Consumer Protections" ????WTF ? And WHO the hell is going to stop the Insurance Companies from doing whatever they want ? They have been denying care and Payments for years - there is NO Protection....there has been NO ONE watching or Caring WHAT they do for years as they rob us blind...

We, 52 Million Americans NEED HEALTHCARE REFORM NOT INSURANCE REFORM...( and yeah, I tweeted the damn Whitehouse...)

Eight Protections ????

Indeed, Enigma. I did my share of petition signing, letter writing and blogging ad nauseam about the need for the health care REFORM (i.e., universal single-payer not-for-profit system). I indeed voted for Obama thinking that maybe this time, finally, he'll get this done...

Instead, we are getting the BS about "consumer protection." That's as far as the "good news" on the subject goes these days.

Sickening beyond belief.

They are doing both.. and we need both.. Insurance has to be reformed also.. Even if the people who have insurance don't think so, they are vulnerable.. and need to be protected or the insurance companies will just dump them worse than they have been doing. Then our public option won't be worth much because it will only be loaded with old sick people and the insurance companies with young healthy people.. so by reforming health care and insurance at the same time, it stops them from doing that. That's why he says they won't be able to keep you from enrolling if you have a pre-existing condition and such as that.. like I said, we need both.. the ones who have insurance need protecting, the ones who don't have it need the public option.. so he is pushing both plans.
