Dear Progressive Friends and Activists,


This week the entire East Coast was hit with a massive snow storm. But it was NOTHING compared to the relentless snow JOB coming out of the White House and Congress on the health care bill. The lies are flying so thick it will take a couple alerts to shovel them out all of our way. The most important thing is that WE must speak out and declare the TRUTH that


"The Health Care Bill Is A Total Fraud On The American People"

Before anything else, for those have not been paying attention, we are NOT the right wingers. The Republicans won't vote for the bill, but for the WRONG reasons. For them it's not vicious and exploitive of the people enough. They in fact secretly want it to pass, because they know it is destined to be the most despised piece of legislation in American political history, and woe unto any Democrat who votes for it in its present form.




Remember that we were the people who told you the TRUTH about what was really going on, when we wrote over three months ago that Obama had no intention of letting a public option of any kind survive. We told you long before that the so-called "public option" was itself a sham, a misleading impersonation of real reform (which was and always will be single payer) that was never intended to be anything but a transitory process device to get weak-minded liberal saps to compromise their compromised, compromising position, until there was nothing left.


Did you believe us then? Believe us now . . . now that anything with even a remote chance of actually reducing our health care expenses (Medicare buy-in, prescription drug re-importation, even a feebly weak public option) has been systematically stripped out of the Senate Bill on direct ORDERS from the White House, not that corrupt members of Congress needed any serious prodding from that end.


President Obama is out there right now laying it on thick with three primary promotional touts, all of which are such transparent bunko it is astounding that they even need to be debunked.


First, he says the Senate Bill is a good thing because it contains a so-called "bill of rights", and isn't that all we wanted anyway he says, to just curtail a certain laundry list of the most egregious medical insurance industry rip-offs. Second, he talks about how wonderful any bill that provides health care to 30 million new people must be. And third, he argues that the Senate bill must be something great, because he claims the insurance companies are strongly opposed to it.


As to the "bill of rights" spin job, how drop kick stupid do they think we are? Wasn't it just last May that they passed with great fanfare a so-called Credit Card Holder's Bill of Rights. Oh yes, that's exactly the same deceptive way they framed that one too. Didn't we just fall for this same PR ruse? The worst credit card abuses would be stopped the sell job went. But in just the same way, any provision that would have ensured a real reduction in outrageously usurous credit card interests and charges (like a reasonable cap on interest rates) was rejected.


Instead, credit card companies have played every possible game to raise rates since, and just this week we heard that one of the worst offenders came out with a new card with, get this, an effective interest rate of 80%, all in full compliance with the shiny new bill of rights law. What a mean-spirited, cruel and pathetic trick to play on the American people. Are you starting to get it yet, folks??

Now, as to the 30 million new people the new bill will supposedly provide health care for. The bill will do absolutely NO such thing. Instead, it will FORCE 30 million new people to provide health care for THEMSELVES, limited in their choices to an insurance kangaroo pit run by, for, and exclusively under the effective control of the very same rip-off insurance corporations we have now. It is the functional equivalent of making people buy their OWN holiday gifts, at a premium inflated price to boot, and then bragging about giving them generous presents.


And what if some of those 30 million people can't afford to pay the entire ransom of their new indentured health care? Well, then the rest of the American taxpayers are forced to make up the difference, giving the insurance companies a direct I.V. to suck the life blood out of the American treasury.
