Corporations. The Public Option is off the table. As per the Senate Finance Committee statement this afternoon. The Healthcare Industrial Complex has won. They own our government. I will struggle through another winter of no asthma medicine or Doctor visits for my lung problems. I am a single father with two teenagers. Almost 5 years ago, I started my own business so I could stay close to my kids and at least make a good go at paying my bills. One bill I could not afford was the $1,100.00/ month insurance payment for healthcare. I tried to get some help and they laughed me out of the office. I made too much money.

If there were ever a torches and pitchforks moment this is it.

Screwed: The Undeclared War against the Middle Class ... and What We Can Do about It
Under the guise of "freeing" the market, conservatives have enriched themselves and their fat-cat cronies and screwed everyone else.
