On the right sided of the arrow we have the status quo: Health insurance that covers only people who are working at places that have benefits, who don't have pre-existing conditions. Somehow the Obama people, and presumably Obama himself thinks that the former is as bad as the latter.
Let me make this really clear for the hard of understanding: It is equally wrong to cover everybody's health care as it is to deny coverage to people who can't afford to pay or that an insurance company doesn't deem "worth" covering. Still too hard? Let me give you an example:
You get cancer. Your insurance company refuses to pay for the needed treatment. You can't afford it. You die. Alternative single payer healthcare (you know, the one the Senator has) would have covered you and you'd be alive. Simple. Get it?
Obama's ad claims that the middle ground will make health insurance companies cover more people. So in essence the Obama camp is saying, like the Republicans have been saying: Some of you mofo's are gonna have to die.
Really, that's what it comes down to. The left base of the Democratic party is so wedded to the Democratic party that they don't even mind being insulted. If John McCain so much as farts I get an e-mail from Move on and other assorted "left" organizations. Same thing happens if Sarah Palin so much as opens her mouth. But when this little piece of crap was broadcast not a single message hit my mailbox.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
