I hope someone out there is just as outraged as I am. Sixty U.S. Senators cut deals instead of doing the will of the American people and now we’ve lost Ted Kennedy’s seat. This is what happens when politicians don’t stand on their principles and our President wavers like the wind. We never wanted healthcare exchanges and piecemeal healthcare run by a conglomerate of self-interests. The people wanted universal healthcare coverage for all.
Well, now that the Democratic Party has received a smack down in Massachusetts, maybe someone will FINALLY listen to the people. Our window of opportunity for change is now apparently closed and my patients and profession will continue to suffer.
MLK said it best: “All that good men need to do for evil to flourish is nothing.”
