it’s a long way from single payer and it’s not even a very decent substitute for a publicly funded health care plan…but this is what the intelligencia congressional assclowns in washington have  pulled out of their baggy pants to mollify us with….. i guess they are hoping that the mean republicans won’t hurl socialist epithets if we form health co-ops. just goes to show when you tell the democrats that we have a lion to tame with private health insurers, they are more than willing to hand you a paper mache’ chair and a whip made out of chenille string, while they cringe in the corner…

my idea of a co-op is pretty non-competitive…the danger to private health insurers is probably viewed by the ceo’s at the private health insurance lobbyist-sponsored cocktail parties sort of the way wal-mart or albertsons views a challenge to their dynasty by the north-side coop…

 

“The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, said Wednesday the idea could be key to a bipartisan health bill. Baucus raised it in a meeting with President Barack Obama, saying later that Obama showed interest. Baucus’ Republican counterpart, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, also said the concept had potential.

“It’s a way to bridge the gap,” Baucus told reporters.”

 

yeah, max…for you it is. for the rest of us, it’s just a bridge to nowhere. thanks for nothing….

sigh, i am thinking of cashing in my blogging time for some time spent attempting to write the next big lebowski. for those of you who still hold out hope there’s this interview
