  •  Nice facts but you forget that this is not reform (1+ / 0-)

    Throwing more money into unreformed institutions was not a reform of the banking and financial sector.  

    Throwing money at health insurance is no reform of the health care sector.  Continuing the employer-based model, continuing the model in which getting sick means losing everything -- and that is what HR 3200 promises -- is not reform.  

    We need health care guaranteed -- not another d@#$%d insurance policy with premiums and out of pocket expenses and individual and business mandates.  

    The fundamental model is wrong: "insurance" is not what we should want or think about.  Rights and guarantees of those rights are the appropriate model.  A right to buy insurance is one thing.  A mandate forcing us to buy is another, and removes my rights rather than enforcing them.  

    HR 3200 is fake reform.
