SICK IN AMERICA
This evening, Obama talks health care with greedy Republicans and cowardly Democrats in hope of finally passing some sensible health care reform. Good luck, Barack. Vested interests are well-represented and lobbied for, and some people are just getting too damn rich off the present system to allow progressive change. Republicans are calling the public talks with the President "a set-up," and fear for their lives (and pensions, and health plans) while the Democrats are trying on a wide variety of sheep outfits and preparing the mint jelly. What do you think? Should health care be a right of all Americans, or a luxury item for only the most fortunate?
This Frontline episode is appropriate today.
