We must not buy federally-mandated insurance! No single-payer, no sale! No public option, no sale!

A special comment from Keith Olberman, December 16, 2009


Any law that requires an individual to pay money to a private corporation or face criminal penalty is a bad law and must be struck down. I could write pages and pages about the healthcare issues with this bill, but you need look no further than that single, salient point for solid ground to strike down this terrible bill.

In case you missed it, below you can find former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, MD and his take on the Senate bill. He is leading the “kill it” charge and drawing a lot of ire from Senators and The White House. To me, that seems to indicate that he is on the right track.

Howard Dean: “You can't vote for this bill in good conscience.” December 15, 2009
