Comment: health care reform

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 24, 2010

I find it odd that so many people call this a government takeover of health care. With government barred from competing with for-profit insurance companies, prohibited from negotiating lower prescription drug prices for Medicare (or shopping for generics or importing meds from Canada), and all citizens required to subscribe to private insurance company programs, this looks like a corporate takeover to me. And the beauty of the Republican opposition strategy (and Republican corporatists do benefit from this plan) is that they get to blame the Democrats for anything that goes wrong. I suspect many progressives are aghast at passage of this bill what’s happened. They certainly are in turmoil about it.
