Healthcare Reform? Bend Over America…!


Middle Class Healthcare Reform? Bend Over…

by Donna Smith

It’s coming. You and me and every middle class, working person in this nation is about to start handing over more and more of their hard earned cash to the private insurance industry, courtesy of our own elected members of Congress and our very popular President. Fire up those Treasury Department presses. We’re going to be printing and providing money for insurance companies like no bail-out we’ve seen yet this economic crisis cycle.

The healthcare legislation under design and so far under wraps for the American people is slowly being leaked via carefully staged forum and meetings and a few well-timed hearings and grand press announcements. Much of the work is still going on behind closed doors in private meetings attended by those who are deemed appropriate participants and industry friends.

Remember how open these proceedings were to be following all the Clinton plan debacles of the early 90s? Well, today’s stagings are far more sophisticated and planned out. So learning did occur by the industry giants and their political friends over these last 17 years, I will give them that.

And what do we know so far about what middle class Americans can expect from the legislation being privately crafted?

First, no matter what percentage of your take home pay it takes, you will be legally required to buy private health insurance. Second, if all you can afford is a policy that leaves you financially exposed to bankruptcy and foreclosure, then you will still be legally required to purchase that private insurance product. Third, should you fail to buy a policy, you will pay a fine.

Like it so far? Feeling free and protected? Like the choices so far? It gets better.   (Read the rest, you won’t like it either…)  

Is there time to STOP this MADNESS?  –   Maybe!

Call or Fax  Senator Max Baucus and tell him that SINGLE PAYER is indeed on the table &  let him know Americans will not stand for a health insurance and pharma bailout!   Phone: (202) 224-2651 (Office)   //  (202) 224-9412 (Fax)

And one more – Call  President Obama at the White House, the Senator’s boss in this matter and tell him the same!  Also tell him Single Payer is not for later, the time is NOW!  //  (202-456-1414 or  202- 456-1111)
