A TALE OF TWO CANCERS

This should be of interest to every person concerned about medial bills mounting regardless if they have insurance—the cheaper policies will certainly bankrupt anyone with a life threatening illness or injury.

Conservatives believe that the health of all citizens-even that of children–should be a marketable commodity on Wall Street. Do you?

And, by the way, I recently had a colonoscopy right here in the U.S.A. I had to wait two months. Good thing that it turned out well. So, U.S. citizens have to wait for non emergency health concerns as well. I certainly don’t mind that. Take a close listen to this video and think about it.

    Great video, Max. At first, I thought it might be depressing. But no. It’s informative, and makes me salivate for American single-payer health care.

    Thanks JoAnn! Me too! But, of course, the conservatives have got to pay for the huge tax cuts for the wealthy somehow–they’re working hard on it but I’m beginning to at least have hope for sustaining the ACA at least until the Dems gain enough power to fix its problems and then move to bring about universal healthcare–single payer–and get the damn corporations out of it. They could still sell supplements.

    It looks to me like the Virginia Dem sweep is going to cause more folks to balk at pushing for that tax cut.

    The Republican “elite” in Congress only care about helping their donors. And all their donors care about is themselves. Tax cuts for the wealthy paid for with healthcare cuts to everyone else.

    And more recently, Tax cuts for wealthy donors paid for by the middle class: income tax increases — and eventually cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.

    So immoral.

      Yes it is immoral and it’s rooted squarely in the drive for an unfettered free market. As G. W. Bush said with a wide smile, his base is the “haves and the have-mores.”

      Many pundits keep scratching their heads wondering why conservatives keep pushing supply-side economics when it has “clearly failed.”

      No, it hasn’t. It’s doing exactly as designed. We need to recall Grover Norquist’s remark, “I’m not in favor of abolishing the government. I just want to shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.”

      That view still underlies Republican strategy. And I’m quite sure that they know damn well that a free wheeling Wall Street will have no interest in having a middle class and will only care about poverty in that it will provide a very large, cheap workforce.

      I’m not sure I’m exaggerating when I say that the conservative power brokers want to take us back to Dickens’ London, and the only specter to be seen will be the emaciated ghost of the Middle Class.
