Waiting for 2010 #86: The Players in the Health Care Reform Game

Here is a laundry list of rather uninformative generalizations that could be a starting point to do further research on the topic of health care reform and by no means condones the rampant parroting of talking points by ditto-heads of all political persuasions (all in one long run-on sentence punctuated with a colon):

1. The Obama Administration wants to have a government-run health insurance option for those who are either uninsured or under-insured.

2. The Democrats have a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

3. Interestingly enough, the pharmaceutical companies are apparently on President Obama's side this time around.

4. Not surprisingly, so the anecdotal stereotype goes, your insurance company might not be on your side when you really need it (even though you were lead to believe that you paid for good coverage).

5. The ditto-head opposition is getting louder and slightly scarier as the shouting-match-sorry-excuse-for-a-debate rages on.

6. The rational opposition needs to speak up. I personally would like to hear all viable proposed solutions to health care reform. Also, being associated those described in number five is not a good thing.

7. Back to number five: Bullies often play ("pretend") the role of victim; actual victims try their best to become survivors. (I'm saying that the ditto-head opposition are a bunch of bullies, detracting from what could be a serious debate among rational, well-informed citizens.)

8. I forgot what 'eight' was for.
