    people off.  they suddenly are raging against the president over a rumor!  unfounded and most of the time wrong.
    Yet over and over we see this.  Diaries popping up every week railing over a rumor being peddled by the media

    •  The media is trying to pretend some European (0+ / 0-)
      nations have systems similar to the crapsurance bill, but that is a bald faced lie.

      None of the European systems that include private insurance elements (typically THEY are the option) allow the insurance companies to run the show, and none of them pay for it by demanding people spend money they don't have or not get care. None of them cost what we do because none of them cherry pick, also their profit margins are a fraction of what they are here. Most crucially, Europeans get cae, while Americans increasingly get bad bad care that is worse than that in many Third World nations, but hideously expensive.

      What we do here is barbaric, its seen universally as absolutely barbaric, and the criticism in the overseas media is getting increasingly blunt.

      We are being lied to.

      Single Payer is SO much of a 'no brainer' that it reveals our CURRENT politicians as having no brains!
