What would it mean to “win” the healthcare fight?SHOCK!
For some, the answer is obvious: beat back the president’s proposals, defeat the House bill, stand back and wait for 1994 to repeat itself.
The problem is that if we do that… we’ll still have the present healthcare system. Meaning that we’ll have (1) flat-lining wages, (2) exploding Medicaid and Medicare costs and thus immense pressure for future tax increases, (3) small businesses and self-employed individuals priced out of the insurance market, and (4) a lot of uninsured or underinsured people imposing costs on hospitals and local governments.
We’ll have entrenched and perpetuated some of the most irrational features of a hugely costly and under-performing system, at the expense of entrepreneurs and risk-takers, exactly the people the Republican party exists to champion.

How ever can this be!!!!
Isn't it enough to keep The Government's hands off of medicade and medicare... But to talk about PRICING the small businessses and self-employed out of the insurance market... How can that be, since clearly the Free Market System would open the doors for total military victory over the horrors of socialised thingusesUndtPooh!
What short of GODLESS defeatist rumour mongering is Komrade Party Leader From embarking upon as he stabs our glorious military in the back with his godless defeatist rumour mongering!!!
