TPJ: The Democrats who stabbed us in the back? The usual turn-coats: Baucus, Conrad, Bill Nelson, Thomas Carper, and Blanche Lincoln. It's time to end the madness and defeat these three "Democrats" who don't represent the people but the insurance companies. The "trigger option" is kicking the can down the road, re-arranging the decks on the Titanic and amounts to nothing more than stalling tactics. It's giving the insurance companies one more chance that they don't deserve. It's like giving the spouse who has beaten you, taken you for granted, stolen your money repeatedly, leaves you for dead and has done it for decades, another chance. To read why the trigger option is a poison pill--read this. PLEASE read it because the conservodems and Republicans want you to think that it's a real good idea. It's a catch-22, Faustian bargain or "Deal with the Devil." The same goes for the co-op, which I've shown before on this blog to be a cop-out.
If the Baucus bills passes as is, then Liberals in the Senate need to vote AGAINST the bill because a bill requiring mandates BUT without the public option is a give away to the insurance industries. Not only that but it will be a hit to the middle-class who will have to pay a fine if they can't afford to buy insurance. That's because it mandates people get health insurance without giving them affordable options. Therefore it's not only a regressive tax but it is a bailout to the insurance industry because the mandates means that they will be getting a flood of new customers. It also looks like this bill will still allow them to deny coverage and jack premiums.
So if you feel any sharp pains in your back or neck region it's because you have five knives in your back named, Baucus, Conrad, Lincoln, Nelson and Carper. I'd say email these people and tell them what you think but I've been doing that for months now and obviously it didn't convince them to vote for the public option. So. I've decided to send my money to ActBlue to defeat these "Democrats" because while I'm more a Green now; I want to see these Senators go down in flames. This time it's personal lol. I've also decided to give my money to organizations who are fighting for campaign finance reform.
