The Public Option is Neither

The current ‘public option’ being bandied about may be the biggest con job since well… the last con job: TARP I guess, hell, there’s so many to choose from since:

BARACK O’BUSH took office in January

The Public Option is neither




It’s intended to be FORCED, that is TO FORCE YOU TO PAY TO FOR PROFIT PRIVATE COMPANIES THAT CAN DENY YOUR CLAIM AS USUAL. And it’s not paid by your taxes.

2.5% of your ‘adjusted gross income’ in addition to the money your pay for fat congressmen and bloated military assholes.

Because it’s YOUR FAULT that you weren’t covered by AIG in the first place, it’s all about YOUR TOTAL LACK of Personal Responsibility, you SCUM SUCKING ALLIGATOR.

You didn’t pay enough to the MIC.

Or actually, you didn’t get enough back.

More money to the military than ALL THE OTHER NATIONS IN THE WORLD:


But, there’s none left.

We have been sold out by –as far as I can tell — every member of congress except Kucinich (who has been able to attach a ‘states rights’ clause to the bill that would allow states to do single payer, if they had the $$–which they don’t) and Sanders.

Many of the very Senators who ran on single payer (RON WYDEN YOU FUCKING PRICK–THIS MEANS YOU) have done everything they can to kill it.

And Barack O’Bush?

Open to mandates, which he campaigned against in the primaries.

Open to well–open to what was in fact John McCain’s “health plan” PLUS MANDATES.

The worst of all worlds.

Fuck you Mr Barack O’Bush.



  2. …give me something better than Barak O’Bush.

    I think the administration is indeed capable of triangulating bullshit.  But anything that makes insurance mandatory and putatively universal will change the game and force future policy changes to work in that frame.  The minimum formulary and the covered procedures will be a matter of federal policy.  If everyone has to pay it, then ultimately the cost will become a matter of regulated policy.  

    More people will get denied.  And more people will have access.  Denials and costs become a matter of public debate, rather than private judgement calls.  That’s the nature of countries where universal coverage is attempted.
