After all, these are rich, powerful people who can wrangle a public hearing any time they choose. What do we gain from giving them yet another forum for their views? Are they going to say anything we can’t already guess at? Will they suggest that the free market is antithetical to giving people life-saving health care? No, they will say the same things they always say…that they won’t be able to do their job effectively with too much government interference, and, yes, they know they’ve made some mistakes, but they will do better. You are doing no service whatsoever to the public that looks to you for information by pandering to their propaganda. For a change, why not let ordinary people, people who struggle to get by and have to hustle to figure out how to pay their bills, let them have an open forum to dispense their own wisdom? This is a waste of time.

With a 12 trillion dollar deficit, the government can not pay for health care as Americans can not pay. If we write a bad check, we are put in jail. How about doing the same with public officials who know they have a deficit, then, we propose programs which they can not pay.
2. Talk about a double standard, right…..
