And Jonathan Alter explains how these craven, corrupt, BRIBE-TAKING SENATORS, and the CORRUPT, ANTI-AMERICAN, INSANELY GREEDY LOBBYISTS & EXECS WHO BRIBE THEM, are TREATING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN AS CHATTEL, as indentured servants / slaves TO BE WORKED TO DEATH and TOSSED ASIDE in wretched poverty, if the good lord above should by chance inflict said Americans with a debilitating or life-threatening disease:
I had cancer a few years ago. I like the fact that if I lose my job, I won't be able to get any insurance because of my illness. It reminds me of my homeowners' insurance, which gets canceled after a break-in. I like the choice I'd face if, God forbid, the cancer recurs—sell my house to pay for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in treatment, or die. That's what you call a "post-existing condition." )(continued)
THE ORIGINAL DISTILLATION of this de facto talking point of these TREACHEROUS, TRAITOROUS "Democrat" senators comes from UBER- RIGHT-WING entitled Republican multi-millionaire heir BILL KRISTOL, who dons his Concentration Death-Camp guard hat to say "I DON'T CARE IF AMERICAN SCHOOL CHILDREN DIE from lack of preventative health-care, or lack of premium insurance in case of treatable diseases";
the foul, greedy, war-mongering, entitled, arrogant, racist, insanely greedy Kristol's exact words:
"WHENEVER I HEAR OF A 'HEARTLESS ASSAULT ON AMERICAN SCHOOL-CHILDREN, I TEND TO THINK IT IS A GOOD THING."
THAT is the agenda THESE "DEMOCRAT" TRAITORS AGREE WITH: "WE DON'T CARE IF AMERICAN CHILDREN DIE!" because health-care is now UNAFFORDABLE for American families: SO A TINY PERCENTAGE OF CORPORATE PARASITES can WALLOW in their filthy, unlimited,ill-gotten bonuses & billion-dollar stock-options.
In the Senate, both parties have outsourced health care legislation to six Finance Committee lawmakers: Max Baucus, D-Mont.; Kent Conrad, D-N.D.; Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M.; Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.; Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Olympia Snowe, R-Maine. The group recently announced it is rejecting essential provisions like a public insurance option that surveys show the public supports. Meanwhile, seven mostly Southern House Democrats have been threatening to use their Commerce Committee votes to gut any health care bill, regardless of what the American majority wants.
This, however, isn't about the majority. These lawmakers, hailing mostly from small states and rural areas, together represent only 13 million people, meaning those speaking for just 4 percent of America are maneuvering to impose their health care will on the other 96 percent of us.
