It's really mind-boggling how Obama and the Democrats in Congress have screwed up "healthcare reform." Because they ruled out the cheapest, most efficient and effective plan (single-payer, medicare for all), and have been compromising with Republicans and "Blue-Dog" Democrats, there isn't much "reform" and little "change" in the plan making it's way through Congress. The health care lobbyists have killed universal health care again.
It's all about class struggle folks!
