Pffttt! So much for any semblance of Health Care Reform-Senate votes against Public Option

I'm surprised it did that well. Interesting (and frustrating) to me how many people treat the public option as though it were a dreaded disease. In my opinion, shackling health insurance to one's employer is ridiculous. Ever tried to be a self-employed person? Why should an American lose health insurance if she or he loses employment?  And why should one's employer pay half the bill?  

Another interesting observation is that the ones who are most afraid of the public option are also the ones who seem to be OK with the Corporate takeover of everything. But how amenable is the spiraling cost of private health insurance to the viability of our corporations (unless it's a health insurance corporation)? This isn't rational.

How disappointing!  The era of corporate welfare in this country is alive and well.  The O&G, military industrial complex and insurance interests are still in control.  The WP's must be voted out of office, it's our only hope.

I certainly don't know how all this will play out but what i do know is that the dark and greedy ones are destroying themselves. Even though our systems are still supporting them, they will go down.
