The speech was brilliant as usual, but the fine print is something else entirely. Everybody should take the time to read Mark Taibbii’s article over at Rolling Stone Magazine, which explains in great detail, which proposals are even being considered, and why others have been trashed from the start. It’s a long article, but if you want inform yourself, looking behind the official rhetoric, please the time. It was re-posted at this website: www.commondreams.org Speeches, can sway people either way, but only the BILLS matter. The one proposed by the Senate Finance Committee is RIGGED from the start, and this article explains how and why. If this is the bill that Obama is willing to accept, then it is no good. It could actually make everything worse. I’m in favor of reform, but not reform financed by big insurance and big pharma.
