No Time To Lose

From Suburban Guerrila, I see that Robert Reich is warning that if we are to get public health care, we must act now. Not all of you are afflicted with wingnut representatives like John Cornyn, K. Ba'al-e Hutchison and Ralph hall, though I will write them. You may have some effect on rational members.

Robert Reich Sounds the Alarm

You can contact your congress members and senators here or " target="_blank">here. Let’s fill those voice mail boxes, clog those fax machines, lead sit-ins in their offices. Surely you can afford to take a day off to save your country’s future!

Robert Reich says we have no time to waste if we want to save healthcare reform:

I’ved poked around Washington today, talking with friends on the Hill who confirm the worst: Big Pharma and Big Insurance are gaining ground in their campaign to kill the public option in the emerging health care bill.

You know why, of course. They don’t want a public option that would compete with private insurers and use its bargaining power to negotiate better rates with drug companies. They argue that would be unfair. Unfair? Unfair to give more people better health care at lower cost? To Pharma and Insurance, “unfair” is anything that undermines their profits.

There's no accepting substitutes for health care.

No, Ruth, I have for Senators Coburn and Inhofe, with Mary Fallin as Representative of my district.

No hope there.

Though I do write them anyway.

Sorry, Ralph Hall is worse, he's the oldest and most ForSale of the entire Congress. Has lit into a woman in the Mariannas who was trafficked, insisting it was her moral turpitude that caused her difficulties. No one in Congress is lower than that.
