In case you’re interested, here’s a fresh post with some astrological details concerning the Dec 2, 1993 memo from Bill Kristol to the GOP on tactics to ‘kill’ the Clinton health care plan.
A link is included to Kristol’s memo which you may read and learn from, if you will.
Sometimes history repeats like acid reflux, thanks to Washington politicians using the same tactics that worked before.
Here and elsewhere I have complained that 2009′s Health Care Reform bill is being opposed if only to undermine a Democratic White House, and I wasn’t even considering Republican actions and the factions of 1993. Was I wrong?
Never mind that Democrats have a mandate from we-the-people, many of whom need relief from a costly run-away health care system that intends only bankruptcy for you if you should find yourself in a bind.
In Darwinian America of the New Millennium, you have to be fit to survive, otherwise it’s buh bye, see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya.
Maybe we need a dose of that oft-touted “compassionate conservatism” we once heard so much about. That and ten dollars might get you a fluffed-up pillow in a sparsely-appointed emergency room somewhere in America.
Meanwhile, Washington pols work tirelessly to protect corporate profits and keep their own stock portfolios fluffed up with med and pharmaceutical returns while insurance companies chortle on their way to open their next offshore account.
But it’s Beltway Brigands who give the old “fox guarding the henhouse” truism fresh meaning with every secret deal they make at our expense.
If a loved one suffers and dies for lack of treatment based on insurance concerns for their bottom line, would you really care which party inhabits the White House – or whose prospects are better for the next election?
Then you’re a political chump. Sorry. But there it is.
