    KEEP YOUR GOVERNMENT HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE!!!:

    I remember, not 10 years ago, when conservatives praised health insurance co-ops and thought they were the big solution that would harness market forces to reduce costs and expand coverage. Now that solution is just "another name for government takeover of our health care". Insurance co-ops already exist - I believe Big Blue of Illinois is in some legal haberdashery of the word a "co-op" - in their litigious tax dodging ways, and the big ones still won't cover people with pre-existing yeast infections, and they have laws they have to follow, so I guess it is in some sense another name for government takeover of our healthcare. I mean, there's laws and stuff, it's socialism! Or do they mean I'm going to join some co-op that will shop for my insurance from... insurance co-ops? This would be easier to understand if somebody would sock Kent Conrad in that fucking baked potato he has for a chin.

    Government has already taken over our health care, and shopped it out for private profit, or maybe private insurers have captured the government and squeezed us for all we're worth. What difference does it make? You are screwed. Please sit back and enjoy the theater.
