Harping Neocons

I have an involuntary

Urge to vomit each time I hear

Those fat-cat conservative's harp

about the present healthcare law.

They seem to read from the same script:

“Higher premiums, more taxes,

declining care” ad nauseam.

Poverty in America

Is roughly seventeen percent

And roughly forty percent fall

Below the poverty threshold

Some point within a ten year span.

So stop your damn bellyaching

The party’s over for you guys.

    Albert, I learned that the whole thing with "insurance companies" came about when it was presented to the infamous NIXON back in early 70's. Thanks to him, our system went rapidly downhill and has spiralled to an out of control system. Anything now is too little too late. It's a very sad situation. I really feel for those who have conditions they cannot control and too poor to afford insurance. People say."well, they didn't buy insurance" well, they couldn't buy it becuase insurance companies turn you down in UTah. Unless you work for a company with a group plan. Why can't the fat cats just keep buying their own superb coverages and let the rest of us at least afford a plan for ourselves? I'd rather wait in a line than have no line to wait in at all. People say our taxes pay for the poor.But even the poor cannot get treatment for really bad stuff. YOu have to be insured. Otherwise, kiss your ass goodbye and die.
