Bernie Sanders offers public option
The Grayson Medicare-For-All Bill
HR 4789 and the public option: the way forward
The GOP, Health Care and You
After 9/11 George W Bush took us to war in order to hunt down and kill the terrorists, holding extremists, who hoped to profit from death, accountable for 3000 victims.
By comparison each year more than 18,000 Americans die due to lack of Health Care. That is six 9/11s.
Insurance Companies are a FOR PROFIT Business, the CEO and Board are beholden only to their STOCK HOLDERS.
They make profits in great part by denying risk, their risks are human lives, American Citizens.
‘We are the only advance nation in the world that has chosen to leave health care at the mercy of a panoply of for profit businesses whose sole purpose it is to maximize income and not provide health.’ - Marcia Angel
By denying health care and life saving treatments their decisions condemn to death our fellow countrymen and women every day.
The Insurance Industry’s actions make it clear they hold no allegiance or loyalty to the United States nor any country, they wear no uniform.
Currently, they are lobbying hard in the Halls of Congress against Health Care coverage for 47 million uninsured Americans and to maintain a stronghold that denies over 100 million under-insured Americans life saving treatments.
We know that the Insurance Lobby has the Minority Republican Party in their pocket, but it is the Centrist Democrats who are now heavily courted by this Health Care Cartel. If successful their actions guarantee that more American Citizens will suffer and die through these intentional actions for profit.
What else can we call this industry, but terrorists.
Obama Open to Health-Care Compromise as Senators Balk
If this is true and he pulls a public option off the table the Democrats will lose their current majority in the House and Senate in 2010 and his election in 2012 will be more than tough.
Independent voters who pushed Obama over the top will stay home or vote third. There has never been nor will there be a better time than now to pass single payer.
If he takes this option on the table Obama will regret it like Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy.
Obama will never been known as a great president if he doesn’t make sure that every American has health care coverage, he’ll be remembered only as the President after Bush who tried to clean a few things up.
I appreciate his level head and cool temper, but there comes a time when a leader has to stand up, be assertive and face some risks. Single Payer, a Public Option is an easy one, he has the moral high ground.
There are no excuses other than timidity.
Be aware that members of the Insurance Industry are sending out a survey covering all areas of your insurance needs, they are doing this to bolster their Public Relations. This is not for your benefit, but theirs.

In 2003, Barack Obama Said He Was For Single Payer.
Q: What would it take to get single payer enacted?
A: “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.” (applause) “I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that”s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that”s what I”d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”
