well actually the surprise is that ANYBODY actuall asked us DEMS what we think, I am surely heartily sick of hearing what the crazy gun totin right wingers think...
Health care without any public option and not the weak sister co ops...
is not healthcare
if we don't get it the insurance companies win....
and FUCK them

( the music was better at woodstock...be sure to scroll down- really amazing version of SHOUT for you...)

Still digging and working on this ....be sure to scroll down and see mortality stats down below...really staggering...( and actually scewed low)

It is going to take ALL of us working this...

hang in there...

Really, what a freakin' surprise. If the Dems don't get their act together NOW, there won't be enough votes in the next elections to save their sorry asses. Which may be a good thing after all -- we desperately need a third (and fourth and fifth) party. A people's party, for a change, and not one representing special interest groups. We mere mortals are neither special nor interesting enough to be really represented by our current politicians.

I was to do a news round-up on the topic today, but instead ended up with this. Sigh.

The lies are taking hold?

Well I guess if you actually look at the tea baggers at these meetings (now I understand the term completely), these people were born stupid.

Without a public option, it won't be worth a thing. Without competition with the Health Insurance Lobby (oops sorry, Industry), rates will continue to go up up up. Even if you LIKE your insurance, your premiums are increasing.

The Senate Finance Committee is looking at changing the rules so the Insurance Industry can keep 35% of your health care dollar (instead of 20% which it is now). Seems they need MORE money for their bonuses.

So again, how are Baucus, Grassley, Conrad, etc? helping people?

Interesting to note that the pro-sayers are now outnumbering and shouting down the tea baggers.

And anyone who has Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security had better not be at these meetings shooting off their mouths about socialized medicine. Same for those WWII veterans!

Stupid Stupid Stupid

Basshert;
have hope...it's not over yet...Obama's forum today her made it clear that he is working on the Public Option...

the birthers and baggers etc etc..they show up at the meetings- but they don't want anything but to disrupt it is like when sarapee entered the stage last year...just alot of anger and mob mentality...
