    1 Health care;
    The Single Payer System that would remove the extortion of the HMOs on each and every medical procedure and exam,
    the Single Payer System, that he promoted was rejected, and instead
    a bill was enacted that forced by law each andevery American to purchase and do business with these extortionists

    To make sure that the bill would be implemented smoothly, he put in place a young woman from the Insurance Idustry, who just happened to be


    a major opponent of Single Payer;
    Bill Moyers;

    Michael Moore: Healthcare Bill "A Victory for Capitalism"
    Moore-democracynow

    President Barack Obama is signing the main healthcare overhaul bill this morning at a White House ceremony. We speak with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore. "The healthcare bill that was passed ultimately will be seen as a victory for capitalism," Moore says. "It protected the capitalist model of providing healthcare for peopleā€”in other words, we are not to help unless there is money to be made from it."

    Big Pharma Wins Big With Health Care Reform Bill
    by the Associated Press

    WASHINGTON - Chalk one up for the pharmaceutical lobby. The U.S. drug industry fended off price curbs and other hefty restrictions in President Barack Obama's health care law even as it prepares for plenty of new business when an estimated 32 million uninsured Americans gain health coverage.

    ["Pharma came out of this better than anyone else," said Ramsey Baghdadi, a Washington health policy analyst who projects a $30 billion, 10-year net gain for the industry. "I don't see how they could have done much better."

    To be sure, the law also levies taxes and imposes other costs on pharmaceutical companies, leaving its final impact on the industry's bottom line uncertain. A recent analysis by Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street firm, suggests the overhaul could mean "a manageable hit" of tens of billions of dollars over the coming decade while bolstering the value of drug-company stocks. Others expect profits, not losses, of the same magnitude.

    Either way, pharmaceutical lobbyists won new federal policies they coveted and set a trajectory for long-term industry growth. Privately, several of them say their biggest triumph was heading off Democrats led by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., who wanted even more money from their industry to finance the health care system's expansion.

    "Pharma came out of this better than anyone else," said Ramsey Baghdadi, a Washington health policy analyst who projects a $30 billion, 10-year net gain for the industry. "I don't see how they could have done much better."

    Costly brand-name biotech drugs won 12 years of protection against cheaper generic competitors, a boon for products that comprise 15 percent of pharmaceutical sales. The industry will have to provide 50 percent discounts beginning next year to Medicare beneficiaries in the "doughnut hole" gap in pharmaceutical coverage, but those price cuts plus gradually rising federal subsidies will mean more elderly people will purchase more drugs.

    But the wierdest thing about all of this is

    Why would the president side with the HMOs, and the corrupt pharma' companies, over the public, and the medical proffesionals?

    And exactly who started this HMO stuff in the first place?
    a neocon?::
