Howard Dean: Health Care Bill ‘Bigger Bailout for the Insurance Industry Than AIG’

President Obama is finally happy with the healthcare bill “compromise”.  1. mandatory healthcare coverage being forced on people, by rule of law, while we are in the middle of a recession. 2. no public option 3. early Medicare buy-in for people at age 55 is GONE 4. insurance company yearly payout limits 5. national plan will supercede any state level laws 6. negotiations were NOT held in the open on CSPAN as he had promised, they were held with representatives of the insurance companies and BIG PHARMA behind the closed doors of OUR White House with proponents of Single Payer healthcare simply not invited 7. there will be no price reduction negotiations with the pharmaceutical industry and we will NOT be allowed to buy the same medicine overseas for less than half the costs we are forced to pay here.

THIS is your healthcare bill victory ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy.

President Obama said he likes the Senate health care compromise and wants it passed by Christmas, but he faces a revolt from liberals who say the health care bill has been gutted to appease insurance companies.

This is a bigger bailout for the insurance industry than AIG,” former Democratic National Committee chairman and medical doctor Howard Dean told “Good Morning America’s” George Stephanopoulos today. “A very small number of people are going to get any insurance at all, until 2014, if the bill works.”

This is an insurance companies’ dream, this bill,” Dean added. “This is the Washington scramble and I think it’s ill-advised.”  ABC News

The very LAST rallying cry the Obamaites still have is that this bill will “cover millions of Americans” and that in itself makes it worthwhile.  They don’t mention that the “coverage” of these millions of Americans is a forced purchase of insurance from for-profit insurance coverage. Somehow, making people buy healthcare coverage under threat of penalty has become a “progressive” action in America. Even still, there will still be millions of Americans without insurance. The only difference for them will be that they will be treated even worse by healthcare providers after the passage of this bill.

Superpower

“We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective–a new world order–can emerge: a new era–freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony.”  George H.W. Bush, speaking before joint session in Congress, Sept. 11th, 1990

We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nation will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller speaking at a UN Business Conference, Sept. 14, 1994

“Superpower: Far from a conspiracy film about the dangers of government secrets and regime change, this well-balanced film straddles the philosophical divide and allows viewers to understand the US quest for global dominance through economic and military strategy that is exposed through review of historical events, personal interviews, and analysis of US foreign policy.

The heart of Superpower lies in the analysis produced from a re-examination of history through a series of interviews with historians, documentarians, and academians such as Bill Blum, Chalmers Johnson, Michel Chossudovsky, and Noam Chomsky, and others with expertise in this subject such as the Executive Producer of The Unit, Command Sergeant (Ret.) Eric Haney; former Chief Economist for the US Department of Labor, Morgan Reynolds; three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly; and Lt. Col. (Ret) Karen Kwiatkowski. Examining key moments in America’s history elicits a more consistent and plausible set of motives for US foreign policy actions guided by global expansion and military dominance, rather than the hyperbolic calls for democracy and totalitarian regime change that we have become so accustomed to hearing.

Should citizens trust that their government will keep them safe, a government that keeps secrets, and lies, in the name of national security? Does the simple act of withholding information lead to a world of eroding civil liberties and corruption? Superpower presents a view of US foreign policy, which lies in stark contrast to that depicted by corporate media, popular pundits, and US heads of state. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the US has emerged as the preeminent superpower of the world. Superpower illustrates how the United States has chosen to leverage that position to pursue a grand strategy which will ensure itself unilateral world domination through absolute economic and military superiority. It shows a consistent pattern of government deception.”
