The ongoing "healthcare" agenda is doing everything but addressing healthcare. It addresses placing the emphasis on subsidizing the insurance companies and has nothing to do with the health of our citizens.

Those who have been watching our government in action over the course of the past 12 months have to be deeply concerned. We have seen our tax dollars going to the financial institutions in the form of what actually is nothing more than "give-aways". After receiving these give-aways we see them actually reduce credit to small businesses and to individual citizens, thus shrinking up what capital might be available to help us out of the recession they put us in in the first place. Instead, we see their "leaders" rewarded in historic sums of monies.

We then see our automobile manufacturers coming with their hands out and our government is ever so gracious with our tax dollars, giving them $Billions. As these leader get back to their plush offices they announce huge lay-offs of American workers, plus spending $Billions on building factories in foreign lands.

Next we have the "gift" to the mining industry through legislation passed.

Now we have the insurance companies with their hands out and the legislators, "representing" us, are once again opening the safe. The corporate media propagandists keep telling us the debate is about healthcare, some are even calling it "socializing healthcare". In fact what is being discussed is nothing more than further privatizing the insurance industry with the influx of taxpayer dollars. In short, how this bill just passed by the House of Representatives does is guarantee an additional 30 million plus more customers than they presently have. In fact the bill goes so far as to actually fine those people who either cannot afford or choose not to pay their insurance dues. This amounts to over a $70Billion annual windfall for the insurance companies.

It might be mentioned the insurance companies presently have a similar arrangement with motorists, as all motorists must pay their insurance dues or they face a fine.

The year 2009 and the Obama Administration have been great for corporations, but it was the promises Obama made to help people that won him the White House. The last person to have his lips read was a one-term president. It appears the incumbent is trying to repeat that, of course his predecessor showed in a corporate driven government the counting of the votes does the trick. Peoples' votes be damned.
