If it has not become painfully obvious to you that the Insurance Companies and the Sickness Care Industry is writing the "Health" Care legislation in Congress, you seriously need to wake up.

They are spending millions of dollars to do so. And what are they spending it on? Politicians.

Politicians and ads to sway public opinion.

This brings us to the key question: What do they want?

They want a Health Care Bill that mandates, by law, that every American HAS to, is forced to, must, buy insurance......FROM THEM.

By Law.

With no alternative.

Their goal is to get 46 million new forced 'customers.'

Let me say that one more time.

The Insurance companies want "reform" that will force every American to buy their product.

Their shoddy, inefficient, BAD product that doesn't work.

Their product that costs more than any other insurance in the world....and that delivers the only the 37th best Health Care in the world.

The product that they want to force you, by law, to have to buy.

Without an alternative, without a Public Option available to compete with them, and to illustrate JUST how bad their 'product'....in other words your health ....really is, this is just a boondoggle to benefit the Insurance Companies.

Without the Public Option to provide competition...and relief for increasing number of "low income" Americans, Congress hands the Insurance Companies exactly what they want.

And of course tyhe next step will be taking any 'reform' out of the bill that makes it affordable, especially to "low income" Americans.

The "Lower" Class and Lower Middle Class.

Not that they, or apparently Congress, gives a damn about the Lower and Lower Middle Class....they work for the Insurance Companies now, not us. Other than a few stalwarts, it has become painfully obvious whose side Congress is on on the Class War that is raging in America.

YOUR elected reperesentatives are more than willing, apparently, and unsurprisingly considering how much money the Insurance Companies are paying to buy your representatives votes..... to hand them this windfall on a silver platter.

YOUR elected reperesentatives areare working towards a "compromise" a compromise that will just happen to be a windfall for the Insurance Companies on the backs of those who can afford it least.

Time to face facts, America. And President Obama. NO Republican is going to vote for ANY bill that is not some sort of giveaway to the Insurance Companies.

NO Republican is going to vote for anything that their Insurance Company masters don't want. IF you want real Health care Reform, the defining fight of your Presidency, you are going to have to force it through Congress with NO (or one) Republican vote. You are going to have to make deals with the recalcitrant Dems in the Senate, Landreiu and Nelson and the rest, yes.

But as long as you are going to have to do that anyway, for the sake of the American Public, at least force through a decent bill, a bill with the Public Option in place.

Or.....Eliminate Mandates.

Otherwise you and the Dems are just handing another VERY profitable victory to the Insurance Companies, and screwing ALL of us.

CALL the White House at 202-456-1111 and at 202-456-1414 and DEMAND a Public Option.

Even IF, lol, you don't believe that the democrats are about to cave.....again.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
