  •  To repeat, I really hope O has really seen the (12+ / 0-)

    light about his attempts to be bi-partisan as well as 'cooperating' with the insurance industry.  And I hope that he has the strength of character, wit and will, to take them on.  Once again, I vote for single payer.  I would guess that the public is behind him on this.

    However, the average person has no clue the extent to which the healthcare industry is being gutted and how this impact will resound for decades to come.

    Education from our side is a must and was poorly done, but we need to try to pick up the pieces.  And we must campaign smartly about this.

    Ronald Reagan arrogantly postured this meme that became the theme of the Republicans bent on deregulating everything:

    "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
    We should counter with:
    "I'm from a for-profit (hospital/corporation) and I'm here to make as much money as I can get out of you for my CEO and Stockholders."
    Thanks, nyceve, as always for informing us.  W. Potter is one of my heroes.

    I belong to the “US” of America, not the “ME,$,ME,$,ME,$,ME,$” of America!
