I whole-heartedly agree:
"Young writes that “had I been in Congress, I would have unequivocally voted against Obamacare.”
“It’s a bad bill. Whether it’s worse than what we have now could be argued. We rather think because of its ability to enshrine and solidify the corporate domination of the health system, it’s worse than what we have now. But whether it is somewhat better or a lot worse is immaterial. The health system isn’t working in this country — fiscally, medically, socially, morally.”
Yet Obama holds this ridiculous form of extortion (cum "health" care) up as his greatest achievement.
In the same way that the banks were bailed out without any genuine restraints put upon the practices that led to the Mini-Depression of 2008, turning over vast sums of insurance money to existing insurance consortiums without putting REAL teeth on legislation that would hold down costs (of drugs and access to health CARE) was a total giveaway and piss poor strategy from a tactical perspective; that is, if the leader inducing this system of graft meant for it to actually improve human lives (outside of those of insurance company moguls).
