Finally, Health Care
Anyway, today I realized why I oppose Obama's plan to fix health care. I've known for a while that something was wrong but couldn't quite put my finger on it. The real reason Health Care is such a mess is the connection between Insurance and Medical Lobbyists and naive law writing senators. I think even the other side would agree with that. Hillary Clinton's National Health plan failed because she failed to consult the Senate beforehand. Learning from her stupidity, Obama offered to let the lobbyists secretly build the system themselves. Cutting out the middleman to save you dollars. Both times, special interests determined the process of passing laws. If anyone wants true healthcare reform from this Democratic government, the course is clear. You have to find a way to separate the lobbyists and senators during important votes. Maybe a giant cage. The fact is, limiting America's medical industry means damaging the Democratic fundraising machine. McCain-Feinstein eliminated some loopholes, but allowed the potential for limitless unconnected PAC donations. The next step is a Democrat-Lobby partnership using the government to finance this dependency spiral. But by then it's too late; laws will already be signed. Either way, I can see that being a Lobbyist for either automobile or medical companies is a growth industry in this recession.
