A curiosity

Compare the relative ease with which a Democratic Congress and a Republican president passed a $700 billion bailout for failed Wall Street investment firms with how difficult it appears to be for a Democratic Congress and a Democratic president to pass a healthcare proposal many Democrats campaigned on.

What does that tell you about the interests the government serves? Discuss.

    Or consider the GWOT. How many hundreds of billions have we dropped into that black hole.How many Americans have died on American soil via terrorism since 2001?How many as a direct result of our insane health care system.

    I think you mean 700 billion.

  3. Thanks for the correction, though in my defense I was likely thinking of the infamous $700 Wall Street bailout of 1794. That was a lot of money back then.

    We have exactly the health care system our corporate masters want us to have, and nothing more. What better way (besides a war, I mean) to clear the planet of useless eaters.
