: You can bitch all you want to, but when our healthcare is controled by Corporate America, our polititians are owned by C.A.we will never be "Free". We will always be no more than slaves/pesants/serfs/indentured survents, there are more names, to those in control ie. C.A. We will never have a political establishment that is making decisions that are best for all Americans.

: The only way this "Never Have" can change is if we take away the control Corporate America has of our politicians. The only way that could happen with real Campain Financing Reform.
: Our present Campain Financing can be summed up in a simple equation:
: $$$$ (To Politicians) = Changing Laws so Corporate America
: gets more $$$$$$$ & control
: Big Brother is not the Government. Big Brother is Corporate America.

That time is already here. Our health care lies in the hands of a corporation that sees us as a financial loss when we get sick. That is why when we need a certain treatment or test we are denied coverage under our insurance plan. Of course we are offered the option of having no coverage at all and being free to decide what medical services we need, but we have to pay an arm and a leg for it out of our menial paychecks from the corporation for which we work.

Our wishes could not be fully heard in Congress because we lack the ability to grant financial kickbacks to the lawmakers who do our bidding like the multinational corporations. We ARE just a set of numbers in the eyes of the government and corporations-Social Security number, employee number, statistic, etc. We are not ruled by a government but by many large greedy corporations.
