We've all heard the saying, "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."
Well, who is the shame on, when someone has been fooling every single one of us, every time we spend a nickel on medical care, since every one of us was born?
That would be our country's insurance companies, in case you haven't figured it out yet.
Well we are hearing (surprise, surprise) from Republican spokesmen, and the likes of ex-insurance man Bill Nelson, that we do not dare make one change in our execrable medical system that has any chance of harming insurance companies.
Here's my two cents on medical care reform: I want a medical system in America designed to help patients, not corporations. I do not give one damn how much damage is done to these inhuman thieves in the process. I do not want to hear a word about what is going to happen to the insurance companies.
In fact, after the endless harm done to our medical system by their rapacity, I want to see the insurance companies staggered to their knees. They have perpetrated a great evil on us, and I want to see them pay the price. Call it justice, call it vengeance- I don't care. I want their greedy hands off of our medical care.
