The Goddamned Lying Health Insurance Industry

Here we go again. Obama meets with the captains of the healthcare and health insurance industry and they say they will reduce costs by $2 trillion over the next ten years. It’s a goddamned lie, just like they told President Carter in the 70’s and just like they told President Clinton in the 90’s. Two trillion dollars is a pittance. WE CAN SAVE $4 TRILLION BY GOING TO A SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM!!!! Don’t you get that? The health insurance industry has failed over and over to self-regulate itself. It’s all a bunch of bullshit.

People are so goddamned afraid of socialized medicine that they’re running around peeing in their pants. A single payer system is not socialized medicine; it is socialize financing of a privatized, entrepreneurial healthcare system. Private Doctor Practices and private hospitals will submit bills to a single payer. You get to choose your doctor and/or your hospital, and all the rest is paid for. You pay taxes that pay for your healthcare. It’s a WIN-WIN situation; the government saves money and you save money. So, why in hell do you let the goddamned lying health insurance industry talk you out of it again? Because you’re stupid, that’s why.

They’re ripping you and our government off. Call your senator and congressman/woman and demand a single payer system.
