Thus major health providers like hospitals and drug companies have reached deals with the White House pledging savings to help finance expanded coverage. The health insurance industry, which ran the famous “Harry and Louise” TV spots attacking the Clinton plan, now runs ads declaring, “Let’s fix health care.” The American Medical Association, perennial foe of “socialized medicine,” has endorsed the plan of House Democratic leaders.
Hillary screwed up by trying to keep the lobbyists and compromises out. Obama screwed up by involving everyone.
I smell something fishy. Now we’re left with a bill that satisfies all the dinosaurs. It’s all smoke and mirrors. For some reason, the healthcare industry is begging for reform? Why? Because they are about to be injected with hundreds of billions of dollars of new revenue from newly insured people. And they can continue to deliver the same thing…practicing and paying for quantity medicine with laughable quality.
