I recently googled “how many lobbyists for each member of congress”. The answer I got was a bit stunning: 6. This rumor has been circulating late night comedy news and talk shows but I was sure it was an exaggeration. It wasn’t. Also surprising, that the entire page of search results announcing this depravity was from bloggers and watch groups. Not a single mainstream news source thought it necessary to inform the public that the reason it is not getting universal health care is because the insurance and health care companies are *donating* millions of dollars to the public officials elected to create said health care. I ask you friends, WHAT THE FUCK? Pardon my language, but is no one else completely dumbfounded and outraged?
What does the health care industry have to do in order for people to understand it could use a competitive product? We already know insurance companies have an egregious habit of turning down coverage for pre-existing conditions such as pregnancy, and oh, being the victim of domestic violence.
Wake up people, this is no joke. Democrat, Republican, Atheist, or whatever, health care is something that every person, every citizen is entitled to. No matter what.
