Health care reform going badly
It looks like the health care companies are winning the battle on Capitol Hill. The public option they opposed is looking less and less likely to pass. Now, the talk is forcing people to buy health insurance on the private market. If not, they will be fined heavily! This mandate was tried in Massachusetts under Mitt Romney and was a dismal failure. I hate to say it, but maybe no reform at all is better than what's being proposed. It's hard to believe that every other industrialized country can get all of their people insured and we can't. Maybe campaign finance reform is needed before any health care reform can pass. I fear that too many politicians have been bought out by the insurance companies.
