Our President has done it again. In his lobbying the Senate for the passage of ANY watered down health care reform bill, the section allowing the importing of pharmaceuticals at much lower prices than what we currently pay has been stricken from the bill. Coupled with the removal of a public option to create competition for policy holders, corporate america is the big winner while WE THE PEOPLE are SCREWED AGAIN.
What a major disappointment. President Obama's ratings have dipped to 50% approval and declining in less than a year. This is reflective of how he has abandoned the people who got him elected. He raised hope during his campaign and as soon as he was elected he has caved on every important issue including bailing out wall street and the banks, the escalation of the War in Afghanistan, and Health Care Reform. He promised to end the wars and create REAL HEALTH CARE REFORM. He promised to create jobs. What we will end up with is a health care bill that benefits the insurance industry and pharmaceutical industry. more of our kids dying, while our leaders line their pockets with campaign contributions in exchange for protection.
This is all about the economics of politics. Our elected representatives are all supported by corporate america, and are only interested in maintaining their political power. The deals to protect Big Pharma and the Insurance Industry in exchange for political support is the DC norm. Line our pockets and SCREW THE PEOPLE--this is the real party line. This is the Executive and Legislative branches of our government. Only in politics is bribery and corruption legal.
