    •  Socialism of the special interests is taking over (0+ / 0-)

      In a way we have co-opted capitalism to where even private non profit community healthcare and for profit construction companies constructing new community healthcare infrastructure have lobbyists.

      The legislative and judiciary branches work together to make sure there is plenty of money getting spread around to the people whose campaign contributions and lobbying efforts buy the decision making system for them, but we are still waiting for the promises of Reagan that the Great Society of Johnson would eventually trickle down if we encouraged the haves to have more.

      Most businesses are aware of how this works

      Road builders building roads, tunnels and bridges, subway systems, and bus lines connecting to new healthcare all have lobbyists.

      Medical device manufactures manufacturing medical equipment for radiation and chemotherapy for cancer patients, CAT scans, ultrasounds, phlebotomy, colonoscopies, and mammograms all have lobbyists.

      All of us have lobbyists, from unions performing the construction work, or training for new workers  to people in your town offices getting community development grants for CHC programs like WIK, Head Start,  and Meals on Wheels.

      Trade associations for the people regulating the people doing the nursing, inspecting our food and environmental protection, designing building codes with handicapped access requirements and providing oversight of the occupational safety for the people mining the raw materials and machining the finished parts of the medical devices all have lobbyists.

      By the time Obama finishes his second term, Obama care will be as thoroughly entrenched as social security, medicare, the national highway defense system, the military industrial complex, broadband cable news, the IRS, wallstreet, the insurance industry, and the FED.

      The only way ordinary middle class people will ever get their share is if they band together to hire lobbyists for the middle class; community organizers who can handle both the business community and the judiciary on a large enough scale to be considered a class action.

      DKOS is that class action lobby and we should begin thinking of it as the lobbyist for our special interests.
