"Government Takeover of Health Care" Deemed Lie of the Year (946 hits)

So, I'm watching ABC's World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer when I hear that the first item on the GOP's 2011 To-Do List is to repeal the 2010 health care reform legislation. My frustration with this announcement causes me to rake my hand across my face. While I commend these newly elected lawmakers for wanting to follow through with their campaign promise, I think the mandate they received from their constituents was lost in transmission. If I'm not mistaken, most, if not all, of these constituents want their GOP leaders to work with President Barack Obama and other Democrats to create jobs and stimulate the American economy.

But that is not what they're going to do. For the next two years, I predict the rehashing of a debate that was closed when the health care legislation was passed through majority votes in both the House and the Senate. And for what? Don't they realize that we the people want reforms that a) make health care more affordable, b) hold insurers accountable, c) expand health care to all Americans, and d) make our health system sustainable?

Brother that's what the middle class wants but for their constituents... who own the insurance companies... they want to repeal health care, because they can't make those big profits.
