Health corporations make him sick
It is very unlikely that President Obama will be able to produce a health plan to cover all Americans since the giant corporations have launched a campaign to try to defeat anything that he tries to do that includes health care. They are willing and proposing to use hundreds of millions of dollars to defeat him with tainted political ads which will be mostly lies as they were in the election trying to defeat Obama.
The outcome of health care reform likely will result in the people not faring much better than they are now. The corporations will pretend to have the people’s interest foremost when in reality their only concern is to keep the "golden goose" in their corner.
What looks so bad is that democratic Sen. Chris Dodd is entrusted with writing the bill along with several other influential senators who have interests in the industry too. Dodd’s wife sits on the boards of four giant health care companies and pulled down a cool $300 million plus in payments and stock awards the last fiscal year.
Members of both parties who are charged with writing a health care reform bill have ties to the health industry including democrats Jay Rockefeller, Tom Harkin and Dodd, and Republicans Judd Greg, Tom Coburn, John Kyl and Orrin Hatch.
Looks like very much to me that the fox is in charge of the hen house once again. It also looks like the corporations have plenty of money to spend and that we have a committee that may be willing to take it.
Once again, don't expect too much since we are the only industrialized nation in the world that doesn't have a decent health care system, but we have many millionaires and even billionaires as a result and likely will be shafted by Congress once again.
