Republicans Defeat Health Care Reform
Well, it’s official: health care reform is dead.
The Republicans won. So did the insurance companies, the drug companies, and the medical industry. All of them profit from the current system and don’t want it changed just to help a lot of grubby unemployed and minimum-wage people who can’t afford medical insurance for themselves and their families.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says they’ll come back to it later. Much later. In the meantime, Sen. Reid, Sen. McConnell (R-KY) and all their friends will have guaranteed health care. It will be paid for by the taxes of people who can’t get health care or health insurance.
Sen. Reid wants Democratic voters to be sure and turn out in November so that he keeps his majority in the Senate. That’s because of all the important issues on which he hasn’t yet caved in to the Republicans. He wants a chance to cave in on those issues, too.
Vote Democratic in November?
I’ll come back to it later. Maybe in December.
I feel like such an idiot for believing in them.
