Health Care Reform is Dead To Me Now

I don't think Americans are capable of it. As the bills work their way through congress, all the things Americans want are being taken out, and curiously everything the health and insurance industries are getting in. When the final bill arrives on the President's desk in mid-January, it will contain a mandatory insurance requirement with a guaranteed annual 10% rate hike. The costs will drive a number of businesses to outsource to countries where wages are lower AND health care is paid for by the governement. My antipathy towards congress is stronger than ever. The senate, a little less.

I'm done. Now I'm going to bust up this soapbox for firewood and move on to other corners.
