George H.W. Bush supported Obamacare? Yeah, he really did.

Seriously, this political drama is just silly. I pulled this off of huffington.

Check out page 25.


Coverage of Preventive Services Provisions of Selected Current Health -

Yeah, this whole psycho Tea Bagging nonsense is just plain bizarre. Not to mention many of these people are receiving government benefits?

***UPDATE

A CNN poll just came out, the majority of Americans are against repealing the healthcare bill.

"50 percent are fine with the current law or want Congress to go back and pass something that would increase the government's involvement in health care even further.

The 47 percent who favor "repeal and replace" is significantly lower than the 56 percent who say they disapprove of the bill's passage last week."


Big surprise that the majority of the American people want more government involvement in the bill? I don't think so, after the way the healthcare companies have treated the American people no wonder the public trusts the government more.

The downside to limited government involvement? The healthcare companies are trying to squeeze out of the new laws that were just passed.


Yeah, and to make sure I put the nail in the coffin in terms of the GOPS/Tea Bagger arguments on the HC bill, here's GOP hopeful Romney trying to... well he's defending... no he's attacking... well I'm not really sure what he's getting at.

Let's review The Heritage Foundation's proposals back in March 2003, AGAIN:


"2. Provide support to people to obtain health care based on their need, not where they happen to work, or their eligibility for welfare, or their military record, or their age. Enable individuals and families to use this support to enroll in a seamless system of coverage according to their choice.

The central public policy objective of a health care system is to use public funds in an efficient and economical way to enable every household to obtain at least an acceptable level of health care services and protection from large financial burdens associated with ill health. Whether a US resident is able to count on that commitment should not depend on their current circumstances. Moreover, resources should be used as efficiently as possible to provide help those who need it most to obtain coverage. That requires us to overhaul current subsidy methods to target funds more efficiently and to achieve horizontal equity between similar people.

An important step towards that would be to overhaul the tax treatment of health care, gradually ending the regressive tax exclusion for employer-sponsored health insurance and replacing it with a more progressive subsidy. That is the logic behind the various refundable tax credit proposals in numerous proposals for addressing uninsurance. These proposals would increase the subsidy to lower-income households relative to upper-income households."

Guys, this is some of the most genius political maneuvering I've ever seen, are Obama opponents going to run against their own platform in November 2010 and November 2012?

This reform isn't perfect, but we're certainly taking a step in the right direction! At least almost everyone gets covered!
