Ok, the right questions are still not being asked on health care. Let me ask you some questions prior to your understanding of why I say this.

1.     Do you agree and understand that lobbyists influence the decisions made by our government?

2.     Do you understand that the anti trust laws have been relaxed over the years, by both parties, in regards to monopolies and market control activities by corporations?

3.     When the statements of government control health care is “essential” or must be part of the health care issue or whatever statement they want to use for governmental controlled health care, it is an integral part of this proposed health care plan.

Now the real question should be asked:

1. Who, in the lobbyist world, is pushing this proposed governmental control of the health care system?

If you think it is the administration that cares for all of us, don’t, you got to find out who is economically benefiting from it.

Let us not forget the banking industry where we were told if the first TARP wasn’t passed the entire economy would fail. What did they do? Not buying toxic assets as they stated but gave it to the banks which in turned bought other banks at bargain basement prices furthering their domination of the banking industry. Followed by the Federal Reserve buying up the toxic assets with printed money.

Now knowing the banking industry had this much power, how about the insurance industry, sitting in the middle of Wall Street and the rest of the economic power brokers? We know over the years they have been buying each other up and accumulating more control of the insurance industry. This in turn gives them more economic power and control of their lobbying activities for their benefit. Look at what our government did for AIG who got caught up in the Credit Default Swaps (another name for insurance but couldn’t call it that because it would have lead to governmental regulations), they gave them $180 Billion.

I know the government bureaucracies will have to administer the program but who will give them the guidance, rules, and regulations to support this behemoth? It will be the Congress and guess who gives them lobbying money for their life long careers, you are right if you answered the ones that will be economically benefiting from it. So this completes a circle that has been used aggressively in recent years to promote the most economically powerful programs for smaller groups of the economic elite, which will economically benefit from their influence.

Very little is done in Washington to benefit the people without benefiting some other economically powerful group. That is how things are done in Washington.
