Full disclosure, I am not a doctor or a nurse but I do work in the medical field so my opinions on this bill are biased.
Please forgive the rant…
I have to laugh when listening to the various commentators talk about how republicans will remember the passage of this garbage this coming November.
The only thing I need to remember are the last two election cycles where the republicans got hammered. The same republicans that nominated a great American but horrible politician in John McCain. The same republicans that couldn’t stop spending, the same republicans that lost their way from their conservative values. That same batch of republicans was more concerned about being accepted by the dems, they didn’t want to be left out of the D.C. cocktail circuit.
They got their wish and in turn they got their pockets picked.
Elections have consequences…
We are seeing the results of that election today.
No decent person would say that all Americans should not have affordable health care. Of course they should, but what will we actually get with this piece of legislation? It may be affordable but the quality won’t be very good as many physicians will leave the profession in droves. Many more potential HCP’s will take a second look and and go on a different career path.
Those in favor of this bill will feel good today but when they walk into an over crowded E.R. for treatment or when they have a poor quality physician bungle their procedure then they too will understand that elections have consequences.
You get what you pay for.
There is a reason why many great physicians no longer take insurance or participate in medicare…they are good enough to demand cash up front.
I do not have faith in the current state of the republican party because most of them are RINO’s. They are more concerned about being in power then they are about keeping to the conservative values that they claim to embrace.
You know the republican party is a mess when the RNC is more concerned about staying to the center than staying to the RIGHT. We saw it in upstate New York and we are seeing it in Florida. These clowns like Steele and Boehner and McConnell don’t know how to lead, they only want to stay in power. They are addicted to Washington’s polluting ways.
They have no message, they have no plan. They have let the Republican party as we once knew run adrift and then run aground.
This bill is only the beginning. The dems will continue to chip away until they get what they wanted all along…the public option. What a sad day that will be.
I do not have faith that republicans will change. They are to worried about being nice, they don’t want to get down in the trenches and get dirty they dems do seemingly with ease.
Just once I would love some republican pundit melt down like that clown Lawrence O’Donnel does…then maybe it will wake these idiots up that they in the fight of their lives.
Taking back control of one or both houses is not enough, there has to be a fundamental change in the way they do the peoples business. They need to get a fire lit under their butts.
I am disgusted today…
