The American Nurses Association estimates that $1.8 million has been and continues to be spent per day to defeat any public choice in health care reform. I wonder who pays the price for mass mailings like Culbertson's? I live in an hysterically red district, why is it necessary to oversell the faithful? Is it because all the resources marshaled to stall reform have created a nasty image problem of being the force for obstruction in the face of the 40+ million without a physician?
I don't know who pays for the behemoths' propaganda. But when your premiums rise to about 40% of your income in a little while, as we have been told they will, you can thank the magnates for passing on to paying customers any hidden costs, which would include lobbyists and marketing, and a few more million of uninsured Americans.
Who really cares, just as long as you and I have what we need, right?
AHEM, well the update just this last weekend, I just received a very thick envelop asking me, ME, to help pay for Congressman's crusade against health care reform. What's the Christmas season without a weekly mass mailing opposing any health care reform for the benefit of the millions of men, women, and children without one?
