I hope to see some form of healthcare reform soon. When I look at our present system, it becomes obvious that it is largely greed-driven. I have given up on the system regulating itself and now I say to the industry, “Get ready for the government to take over…you’ve been begging for it!”
The “healthcare bill” before congress, however, is a disaster in progress. At nearly two thousand pages of lawyerspeak gobbledygook, this bill is as inaccessible to the people as Barack’s birth certificate. Deals have been made with special interests behind closed doors. Legislation has been pushed through like a plunger on a clogged toilet.
Everything organic eventually decomposes. It happens two ways: aerobically (with air circulation) and anaerobically (with no circulation). Compost is a good example. Compost made with good air circulation smells earthy and sweet. When something rots without access to air it stinks like overripe sewage.
There is something rotten about what the congress has done. It reeks to high heaven! The stench results from anaerobic secrecy and backroom deals. This healthcare bill needs some air! Let’s put it in a form we can understand and keep the flies of special interests from infesting it with greedy maggots.
