For a succinct explanation of why the just-passed health-care reform legislation is complete bullshit and a total gift to greedy, murderous insurance corporations, see this rundown from Firedoglake [warning: PDF]. Did you know that:
This bill is almost identical to the plan written by AHIP, the insurance company trade association, in 2009.
The bill does not empower a regulatory body to keep people from being dropped when they’re sick.
There are already many states that have laws on the books prohibiting people from being dropped when they’re sick, but without an enforcement mechanism, there is little to hold the insurance companies in check.
Ignorance is strength.
