    Default Koch brothers behind the push to kill healthcare in U.S.

    They are Evil!!

    Like the bill that passed the House this past Spring, the Senate bill is not really a healthcare bill at all. It is a bill to give huge tax breaks to the super wealthy. For example, the plan does away with a provision of the Affordable Care Act that requires insurance company executives earning more than $500,000 a year to pay a tax that helps finance healthcare. The shortfall to be made up by cutting Medicaid benefits for the poor.

    But this is not enough for the Koches.

    At a retreat in Colorado Springs Saturday, Tim Phillips, the Koch brothers’ head political operative, said that the Senate’s plans for Medicaid is just “a slight nip and tuck.”

    The retreat was restricted to donors who give at least $100,000 a year to Koch political enterprises.

    According to the Denver Post, Koch spokesman James Davis said at the retreat that the Koch organization would continue to push for changes to the Senate health care bill over the coming week.

    What does freedom and liberty have to do with supplying healthcare in a forward thinking, civilized and wealthy country ?
    It's available to all, but for profit.
    Remove profit from my healthcare.
    This isn't the dark ages, yet some want us to return to that time of disease and early death.

    a socialist dream that never was or will be
    a VA style care of failure that the Elites will play with you over.
    Vote for me and I will shovel out the most money
    and in your personal greed you will drive down the system to the usual socialist failure.

    Hasn't failed the rest of the civilized world.
    But let the elderly and frail die early.
    Because we are a compassionate and Christian country.
    Sure we are.

    It's not always about money, which there is plenty of.

    My feelings on the healthcare issue is that the Koch's and businessmen benefit by government taking over and mandating individuals to provide their own.....it will alleviate employers from having to provide it.....and they won't pay enough to make up for what they were paying....so it's all profits to them.
    The things that will make that happen is continuing the unionbusting so that people can't put money and political voice together to contractually 'force' employers to pay............................and by eventually getting rid of the issue of more than or less than 50 employees.......they will make sure no employers pay no matter how many employees they have.

    It's all about business not having to provide.....and under an 'individual mandate" they don't.......the masses will not realize that they will not get more money in their checks by this.....they will accept the normal declining pay rate and the massive costs of being mandated to provide their own healthcare.
