Health Care Copy-and-Paste Blogging

posted by Armadillo Joe

...I'm cautiously optimistic that whatever finally gets passed will be a nontrivial improvement over the status quo. Still, I don't think it's crazy for people to be concerned that whatever comes out of the sausage factory might be worse. Whatever it is will be a rube goldberg plan which preserves health insurance profits, keeps hypocritical fiscal scolds happy, has the goal of controlling costs, and can pass the Senate and keep enough blue dog wankers happy. It certainly isn't crazy to be worried that such a plan might, in fact, suck.

The health industry already won by influencing congress enough to delay it till the fall.It buys them more time to write a bill that won't intrude on their profits.If their isn't a true robust public option to hold their feet to the fire,than this whole thing was just a big waste of time and the 2010 election will be the voters revenge.
