I have seen a number of Diaries writtien over at DKos today that are just attacking Dennis Kucinich and making him out to be a villain, for having done the correct thing and voted no on the faux Health Care “reform” Bill.
As I feared, that whole site just blindly believes all the untrue soundbites, phony PR, exaggerated claims, and hype about the Health Bill, and DKos neither knows nor cares at all about the actual language of the Bill, and what this very bad Bill actually does, and what it does not do.
In fact, it is the Insurance Companies who are cheerleading even more wildly than the people over at DKos, which is a reflection of the ignorance, and dogmatic “anything the DParty or Obama does is great” mindset that DKos is hopelessly stuck in.
I am banned over at DKos. I cannot write anything there. So this Essay is a plea and a request for someone here to write a Diairy over at the DKos site (on my behalf), that both defends Dennis Kucinich (and his no vote), and also educates the readship there on just how bad this Health Care Bill really is.
You do not have do write a new Diary from scratch. I have already written one Diary right here at Docudharma on this very subject that you can just copy word-for-word verbatim, that detailed the reasons why the “reform” Bill deserves to be defeated.
Please See and Use this: Why The Health Care Bill Deserves To Be Defeated!
You can just repost it word-for-word. I also wrote a second essay here, containing an additional statement by Kucinich, that also helps provide some further background context for a no vote:
Finally, there is the statement made by Congressman Eric Massa, that deserves much, much wider visibility. Please include this statement (shown below) to prove the point, that it isn’t only just Kucinich here:
“I have respect for the chief executive, but I don’t work for him. I work for people of the 29th Congressional District.
At the highest level this bill will enshrine in law the monopolistic powers of the private health insurance industry. There’s no other way to look at it.”
–Congressman Eric Massa, D-NY
Someone needs to stop the false and dishonest meme over there at DKos that this is a “victory” for progressives, and a great victory for the consumer. It is not.
It is a victory only for the Insurance Companies, once you read the actual language and provisions of the Bill. Our costs are not going to be going down. They are going up. Only now the IRS is knocking at your door, if you fail to pay them.
Who can help out with this task??
Can someone please volunteer to do this??
