Pat Oliphant for June 24, 2009
Man: Perhaps we should consider public option. Lobbyist: Shuddup and stay outa this! This is about the nation's health, - it has nothing to do with you! We lobbyists can handle this very well, thank you. Trying to drive us outa business is what you're up to! Punk: Greed is a pre-existing condition. Man: Always has been.
The heck with lobbyists!!! Those bloody politicians have more to lose if they don’t push this down our throats then the lobbyists do. Universal Health care will be twice nothing, and twice nothing is less than nothing. (So says a person currently without health insurance.) They messed up Medicaid and Medicare. Who in their sane minds expects them to get it right when it’s bigger and easier to misappropriate OUR money?
