  •  Basically people in the US GET WHAT THEY PAY FOR (0+ / 0-)

    None of the normal folk can afford even half of the cost of healthcare with the insurance waste, but without the insurance deniers everybody gets care. They cannot have that because health is what keeps the rich rich and the poor poor. People would not pay extra to live in a safe neighborhood if every neighborhood was safe. People would not pay for clean water if all water was clean. People would not pay for good schools if all schools were good. Then, what would be the worth of a Harvard or Princeton degree? See?

    Obama got elected by downplaying the stark totality of this.

    He told the little people that they were still big. That they "matter". Obviously, they couldn't matter in his world but they desperately wanted to hear that because, lets face it, moving to someplace where they could afford healthcare terrifies people, even though they know that here they are just a piece of meat that has passed its expiration date.

    The sharks are picking them off one by one at will. The ones with assets wont keep them long. They are never going to get good jobs again, so they will never get good healthcare again. Why should the machine invest in people whose usefulness to them is over? Obama plays on those fears by offering them empty hope, but of course, undermining them all the way.

    Selling Insurance across State Lines triggers NAFTA-like provisions in the GATS treaty that potentially makes affordable healthcare impossible!
