Health care reform bottom line
So, there’s a push on for a vote, now that Massa has been forced out and the kneecappers have made clear what happens to progressives who won’t play ball on HCR.
The bottom line is that health care reform is a giveaway to special interests, funded by cuts from Medicare and forcing people to buy insurance or pay or a fine. There’s some decent stuff in it, but less than folks think (for example, old folks can be charged multiple times what young folks are).
I’m still opposed. I don’t think the good outweighs the bad. This is not a case of “we can get better if it fails”, this is a case of “this is worse than nothing.”
