It is not a giveaway to health insurance fiends

Here are details, explaining that what we are getting is not a giveaway to fatcats, but a costly social welfare program: http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/12/health-care-elevator-pitch.html

But really all you need to know, I think, is how hard the affected companies have fought to ditch this healthcare reform effort. Even when you hear champagne corks popping, it stands to reason that the corporate bigwigs are celebrating relief from a threat, not reception of a gift. When have you known defense contractors to try to sink a war; what aerospace contractors deluged Congress with lobbyists trying to eliminate NASA?

I hope Bernie Sanders is just trying to set us up for conference committee negotiations, when he says he’s leaning towards a no vote – because it would be kind of odd, don’t you think, for a ‘democratic socialist’ to vote against establishing healthcare for people of all ages as a national institution.
