More Political Games

Sep 30, 2013

The politicians have been playing political football with the mandate for implementing national health exchanges. Republicans have even clowned about shutting down the government for not passing the budget, all in order to block any funding for anything that even smacks of “national health care.”

This is just another step down the road toward sabotaging any help with health care for poor and working people. Already, all of the parts of the health care bill that benefitted us in any way have been delayed. What is left are all the gifts to the bosses and big insurance companies.

So what if there is no funding? What is left is a law that requires the poor and working class to buy expensive health care that doesn’t cover anything much, or pay fines for not doing it!
