You didn't think I would give up posting on health care reform did you? The pharmaceutical industry has let us down by failing to manufacture enough vaccine for both the seasonal flu and the H1N1 (Swine) flu. Yet their profits soar. The insurance industry is frantically spending millions daily to sabotage the weakened bills that are being considered in Congress. Now is not the time to give up. Please keep calling your Congressmen and demanding that a strong Public Option be included in the bill.
Following is an excerpt from a Truthout editorial:
As the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) goes on estimating the percentages of Americans that will be covered by this bill or that bill, Weiner's bill stands alone in its ethical simplicity: It will cover 100 percent of the people, no CBO guessing games needed.
For now, we call on Congress to pass a bill with a "robust public option."
