Showdown at the Health Care Forum
President Obama hopes to jump start the debate, Republicans are only showing up because their constituents are upset about 20+% premium increases, and the Democrats are spineless. Does anyone think that the forum will accomplish anything? I hate to say it I'm with the Republicans on this one. The people have spoken and they don't want reform. Unfortunately they are a fickle bunch. They want to take advantage of other countries' socialized system by reimporting drugs. They are all upset about premium increases when those people who were for reform said that this was going to happen. They are upset that their employers are dropping coverage. But yet they don't want reform. For all of you worried about the big bad government taking over health care, I've got news for you none of the plans control costs. All of them leave in the employer based health delivery system for what it is worth. The bottom line is that until things get worse you can't get the people to agree to any reform.
