Not Healthy

If the National Health Care bill was so good for us, then why would it be such a btterly contested fight?
~
You would think that if we really needed this, it wouldn't have to be force fed along party lines.  It would be obvious that a huge national expenditure was needed to take care of a problem that everyone clearly saw had to be solved.
~
The US has a health care policy..... that by some analysis is the best in the world.  Emergency rooms are filled with giving care to those with no insurance .  Our hospitals and physicians lead the world in the development of cures and treatments.
~
Should the system be tweaked so that people don't fall through the cracks?  Absolutely. 
~
But this bill is not about health care.  If it was, Congress would be working  in good faith to put together a health care policy that identifies the shortcomings and comes up with some good faith fixes.
~
The fervor and zeal to tip the health care industry upside down and force massive change in a headlong rush betrays the real motive behind this bill.   Surely some Democrats feel strongly about the need for health care reform, but this is really about political power.... and forcing your will upon others.
~
It is the political nature of this bill that is so abhorrent.
