The Bank and Financial Bailout. Now Health Care. Next Climate Crisis…..and oh yeah, War Crimes.
Over the last couple of days of watching Health Care get sold down the river, I have seen a couple of Senators shake their head and make the following statement…
“We just can’t pass Single Payer.”
Well……why not? What is stopping you? You are the most powerful legislative body in the world right? The People of the United States, your constituency, overwhelmingly wants Single Payer Health Care right? The Democrats have 59 votes, so all they have to do is turn ONE Republican right? So it is not that you “don’t have the votes” because of partisanship. Because it is not about partisanship, is it? All that talk by Democrats about how it was the Republicans who were stopping the Democrats from doing what the People want, what happened to that?
So……why? Why are Senators so convinced, so adamant, that it is simply impossible to give the American people, the people who voted you into office, the people who pay your salary, the people the Constitution SAYS you are there to represent, the people who are protesting….and suffering from…our current Health Care system, what they OVERWHELMINGLY want?
You have the power to do it, you have the public support to do it, you SHOULD have the votes to do it.
So what is stopping you?
Who is it that is FORCING you to go against the Will of the People, the people who voted you into office, the people who pay your salary, the people the Constitution SAYS you are there to represent?
Isn’t that the way our government is supposed to work? We The People elect you, We The People tell you what we want and you represent US by passing legislation to get what We The People told you to get us? Isn’t that….the deal? Isn’t that the very basis of our representative government? Isn’t that what our entire system of government is supposed to be based on?
You just gave the Banks BILLIONS of The People’s money…..against the Will of The People. You got the votes, somehow, to give money to Corporations.
Now it looks like we won’t even get the compromise of a Public Option, let alone the Single Payer that The People want.
Why, Senators? Why?
By Golly, it appears as if you are NOT working for The People doesn’t it?
In fact it appears that you have stopped even pretending to honor the deal. In fact it appears that you have stopped even pretending to work for The People.
In fact it is now blatantly obvious that you are working for the Corporations, not The People.
There is no longer any doubt is there, as our government prepares to sell The people out …again….for the umpteenth time, that our government has been bought.
In fact it is no longer OUR government at all. Our government now blatantly and openly is working for the Corporations, not us.
The Insurance Corporations, the Banking Corporations…and coming up the Energy and Pollution Corporations. As the officials WE elected pass legislation that favors the Corporations.
Let’s state this clearly, shall we?
The American Government is passing Legislation that is against the interests of The American People.
It has never been more obvious.
Our Government has been bought.
And is now working against us.
(And in the case of Climate Crisis legislation, against the future of the human race!)
Our Government has been bought.
What are we going to do about it?
