The Audacity of Health


We have a lot of nerve, us progressives, to ask that our law makers intervene to make health insurers play fair and keep up their end of the deal when we (or someone we love) gets ill, wounded, hurt. Especially after we have paid premiums out the wazoo... I believe that is the lay-term for forced-rectal-intrusion-with-a-phallic-ish-object (sans lube).

The monopoly health insurance companies have on health is sickening. Literally.

As I understand it, from a fifth grade comprehension level, we have law makers who make laws (not business deals) to step-in on our behalf and regulate unfair business practices.

What part of the word "option" don't people understand?

I suppose if you aren't about choice, you really aren't about choice. How's that for *self* determination?

Haven't seen a more appropriate description of the ongoing healthcare debacle.

Option. mmmmm that's like another word for Choice.


You see how well that works. These assholes assume that because they don't want it, no one else should have access to it.

That just about sums it all up. Fargen Bastiches.

Well, I guess the right wingers' understanding of the word "option" is kinda like their understanding of the American system of government--i.e. it's the greatest in the world and they'll beat you up for saying otherwise...unless their side happens to lose the election, in which case they want to overthrow it in a military coup. Thus, they're in favor of "options" as long as they're all private insurance companies that profit off of people's suffering (and don't bother with people who can't afford their suffering)...
