As expected Obama has sold us out to the Insurance Companies.
His “New Regulation System” is likely to be ruled out of order by the Senate Parlimentarian and defeated by Republican Filibuster.
There is still an anti-Union excise tax.
There is NO Public Option and therefore NO constraint on Insurance Company behavior.
He has RAISED the penalty on the Individual Mandate.
It’s Official: Obama Is Against The Public Option

Just to be clear, you can’t “support” something if you make no effort to see that it passes. If you do things that directly harm its chances of becoming law, like not include it in your health care proposal, then you are against it. But don’t worry, even as Obama takes steps to make sure that people don’t have an alternative to the private insurance companies that helped ruin our health care system, he did take steps to make sure you face an even bigger IRS penalty if you refuse to buy the poorly regulated product from the private insurance companies.
This is not Health Care Reform.
It is a bad bill that must be defeated.
