Healthcare Mishegoss

It is very disheartening to see where the healthcare debate is going in this country.
What a bunch of losers Americans are. We have a chance to have a decent health system that protects most people and instead we got morons like Sarah Palin talking about death panels and people going to blows in stupid town hall meetings.
But Obama and the Democrats have not been able to communicate clearly what is this mishmash of a plan they are proposing.
Obama wants to have it both ways. It's called a "uniquely American" plan. In other words, a mess. A mess of conflicting interests, a mess of unnecessary pandering. If I was the President and I had a Democratic majority, I would pass single payer legislation, raise taxes and fuck everyone.
We are the laughingstock of the industrialized world. Ask a French citizen or a Brit or a Canadian how much they hate their healthcare. They may kvetch, but they don't have to pay one cent. And if they want extra care, they can pay for it.
This nation is so divided on everything, I wonder why we keep up the pretense. Let's split up into blue nation and red nation and live happily ever after.
