What a sham! The entire healthcare reform debate has come down to political posturing. All we get in our holiday stockings is a lump of pathetic, compromised coal with a neat sachet of insurance bail-out. At a time when real change was needed and the thought was that somehow the eight disastrous years of darkness we have endured would be slightly overcome with meaningful reform, all that is negotiated is a sweet deal for Nebraskans, guaranteed income for truly fatcat insurance behemoths and increased expenditures. Where's the "reform" in this healthcare reform bill?
We seem to have played quite nicely into the Rush Limbaugh game plan of failure for the Obama administration. The Democratic Party's ship is sinking, rats are fleeing and all we have left is an overcompromised collection of dissatisfied crewmembers.
It's too bad, I was hoping for so much more.
