boener hearsecemetaryBefore you Republicans start crying foul, you might want to do your own homework before toeing the party line. Pres Obama and those before him did not fight for health care reform just for the hell of it. Many presidents and those in congress have known for decades that something needed to be done about the for profit health care system in this country. What a lot of people do not seem to realize is that our health care system is unique.

The United States of America is one of the few that has, primarily a private for profit health care system rather than a government run system. It is a system driven by greed rather than any compassion for the millions who have no access to decent health care.

The health care industry makes BILLIONS on the backs of the sick. The money is made in skyrocketing costs of health insurance as well as the skyrocketing costs of hospital stays, doctor visits, medicine and so forth. Those who are against Health care reform are those who are healthy and feel they do not need insurance as well as those WEALTHY enough to afford insurance premiums are as much as one would pay to own a luxury suv. Do not believe me? Get an insurance quote for someone with high blood pressure, eye problems and so forth.

What is going one here is a combination of class warfare and greed. The rich want more money to spend and the health care system wants the billions in profits generated by not having health care in place.

If the Gop gets it’s way, there will be a booming business in the funeral industry.
