Stop Healthcare Reform Madness!

Another great cartoon by Mark Fiore.

In light of the rumoured death of the “public option” in the Democrats’ healthcare reform proposals, it’s quite amusing to see the exuberance with which right-wing bloggers are celebrating the perpetuation of a system that costs twice as much as other industrialized countries, ranks it 37th in the world (behind Costa Rica and just ahead of Slovenia), leaves 50-70 million uninsured, and drives a million people a year into bankruptcy. Go figure.

    AMAZING! It’s surreal, what’s going on there. Almost hard to believe. But again shows us – & a good reminder – to the power of propaganda.

    I really dislike the term “public option.”

    It really is a shame that Obama removed single-payer right at the beginning by explaining it would never get through Congress. I’m having a hard believing he wasn’t being disingenuous at the time given the fact that nothing much is going to get through Congress, a situation I’m pretty sure he could have anticipated.

  3. Most liberals would like to have seen a single-payer system or “medicare for all” (which would have been a better name), but that would definitely have been too radical for most Americans, seeing how they’ve reacted to the “public option” or even now the far more timid (and probably useless) concept of “co-ops” to provide competition for the private healthcare insurance providers.

    Maybe it’s a case of “too much, too soon” coming so quickly after the highly unpopular TARP program and other multi-billion dollar bailouts.
