Among many other things, BOTH of these TRAITOR RIGHT-WING REPUBLICAN WARMONGERS and "MORE financial DEREGULATIONS so we can better LOOT the PEONS!"
Neo-Cons, MASQUERADING as "Liberal Democrats" have in their recent past _SUPPORTED EXPANDED MEDICARE coverage_ for American health care consumers unable to afford, or disgusted with, the skyrocketing costs of America' "private for profit" health insurance.
THAT was back when Lieberman and Emanuel NEEDED VOTES to win elections.
_Now_ that those two NEO-CON TRAITORS posing as Democrats are IN OFFICE with power and authority under them, THEY NO LONGER HAVE _ANY_ inclination to give voters what they want.
Here's the link for the _Nov. 2007_ Washington Post article co-written by EMANUEL, calling for an EXPANSION of MEDICARE, a "MEDICARE BUY-IN" 'option' for those who are under age 65, and in particular for those who retire early, whose RETIRMENT health care costs are nearly THREE TIMES the annual health insurance costs for a younger worker in his or her twenties coming to work for a large (say, auto-) company with similar coverage:
Before We're 64Today, as the ECONOMIC HIT MAN - effectively the Chairman of the board of the GODDAMN-SACHS BANKER'S CABAL + the INSURANCE COMPANY LOBBYISTS cabal + the Likudnik WAR-PARTY WAR-PROFITEERS cabal AND + the Neo-Con Big Media MONOPOLY cabal

We can't afford to let American workers and companies wither on the vine. We can ease the cost crunch for both by giving employers and unions a new option: buying Medicare coverage for retirees ages 55 to 64...
Rahm Emanuel is a Democratic representative from Illinois and chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.Bruce Reedis president of theDemocratic Leadership Council. They co-authored "The Plan: Big Ideas for America."
(the cabal that has a monopoly STRANGLEHOLD on America's press-media that determines what the vast majority of Americans see and hear about the critical issues of America's government and economic policies) -
- RAHM EMANUEL DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN for American voters, and in the past DOZEN MONTHS, anyone will be hard pressed to find ANYTHING Emanuel has said or written ON BEHALF of ANY American voters, citizens or consumer groups.... FACT!
As we wrote in our previous post, RAHM EMANUEL and TRAITOR JOE LIBERMAN (and "Yellow Dog Democrat" Senate Finance Chairman MAX BAUCUS) all think they are CLEVER the way they are SABOTAGING the very basic, very simple, very essential health-care reforms, USING TAG-TEAM OBSTRUCTION tactics, OBSTRUCTING the very reforms that we now know that LIEBERMAN and EMANUEL are ON THE RECORD as supporting as recently as a year or two ago!
(And if you look hard enough, you will find comments by Max Baucus, Mary Landrieu, Bill Nelson, Blanche Lincoln, and all the other TRAITOR "Yellow Dog" Democrat Senators, pledging SOME KIND of health care reform to their constituents, because affordable health care is what the VAST MAJORITY of Americans want, and even the TRAITOR "YELLOW DOG" Senators must APPEAL to their voters for votes every 6 years; and the ONLY way Americans are going to get AFFORDABLE health care, is if they DIVORCE health-care access from ghoulish "PROFIT OVER LIVES" bookeeping and extortion of for-profit insurance companies.)
Indeed, here is a TEXTBOOK example of the New York Times SELLING LIES to help SABOTAGE health-care reform: this whole "Obama Health Care Meeting Aims to Rally Senators" article by Sheryl Stolberg and Robert Pear
reaks of "PROCESS" and "we're so clever, we know every insider move affecting the health-care reform legislation" - by in the too typical NY Times style, the writers and their editors FAIL to CONNECT THE MOST SIMPLE of dots, that LIEBERMAN, EMANUEL, and BAUCUS, have been BRIBED by the lobbyists, insurance companies, and corporate donors, to BETRAY _their own pledges_ to voters and constituents, from just a year or two ago!
In fact, all three - Lieberman, Emanuel, and Baucus - are CHARTER MEMBERS of the "GIVE TRILLONS in TAXPAYER-EXTORTED 'BAILOUTS to CORRUPT, FRAUDULENT BANKERS.... give PENNIES and CRUMBS to Americans who need health-care reform"
Right-Wing FINANCIAL EXTORTION CABAL - an INSANEL CORRUPT, dictatorial, OBSTRUCTIONIST, and anti-democratic CABAL that the NEO-CON New York Times
(and Washington Post, along with the Wall St. Journal, other Rupert Murdoch Fox 'news' outlets, and most of the "financial press")
are also CHARTER MEMBERS of.
