Kent Conrad: The Enemy

He loves him some health care co-ops.  Here’s what The Useless One had the nerve to spew today:

“It is the only plan that has bipartisan support in the Senate,” said Sen. Conrad, a centrist from North Dakota who hatched the co-op plan in June.  “It’s quite clear the public option does not have the votes.”

Well — duh.  It doesn’t have the votes, Senator Douchebag, because you and the rest of the corporate whores in the Senate won’t vote for it!

Whores like Conrad really think we’re stupid:

One health-care lobbyist said cooperatives aren’t stirring up opposition from insurance companies or health-care providers because they see nothing to fear. Insurers are strongly opposed to a public plan directly run by the government.

You may have broken the last straw, Senator Douchebag.  Who’s side do you want to be on?  Choose wisely and live.

(This is a “venting” post.  But what can we do to rescue this bill?)

  1. It is my opinion that Senators didn’t want to sign the piece of legislation because of the public pressure that has arisen in places like the town hall meetings. The corporate whores are the ones who wanted to vote for it. Most corporations want to put their employees on government health care, so it will cut down on their corporate costs. The public option is a ruse in that it will eventually drive all independent insurance companies out of business. The government, as evidenced by USPS, can lose money for decades without fear. Whereas UPS and FED EX have had to operate their businesses for profit, and they have succeeded while USPS has failed.

    If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it’s run by the government. If the defeat of this bill occurs, it will be a victory of the people, by the people and for the people.

  2. if you spent $30 MILLION a day every single day for 2000 years it would still not equal to obama’s $23.7 TRILLLION in financial bailouts

    … the main reasons why people get poorer are because of higher taxes and inflation.
