To protect their monied special interests, they demanded that this individual mandate be added to the health care law before they would consider voting for it. Now we can go back and do it the RIGHT way, instituting a public single-payer option , a Medicare for everybody."
Yeah, then I woke up.
The mandate was born in the rightwing Heritage Foundation, and if it is the core of the healthcare plan as the administration contends, Obama has based his plan on a scheme that few like. In 2009 before Obama unveiled his plan, polls indicated 60% of Americans favored single payer. Instead, the Master of Marketing and Fakery maneuvered them into something they hadn't asked for. Yeah, it's time to wake up.
