Health Care “Reform”

23:30 Mon 09 Nov 2009

Arthur Silber has a typically to-the-point entry about the recent bill passed by the House:

[T]he bill’s primary purpose has absolutely nothing to do with providing "affordable health care." The purpose is to extract as much money as possible from "ordinary" Americans … and shovel it directly to already-engorged insurance companies.

The entire post is definitely worth reading. For a less caustic (but similar) take on it, you could read Dennis Kucinich’s reasons for voting against the bill.
