AP on Health Care "Reform": REMAIN CALM. ALL IS WELL

Ace mentioned the other day they're having a hard time helping jughead. How much longer will they drag buckets for him?

A while longer it seems.

The drug industry, the American Medical Association, hospital groups and the insurance lobby are saying Congress must make major changes this year. Disagreements — chiefly between liberal and conservative Democrats — brought Congress to a standstill this week. But television ads paid for by drug companies and insurers continued to emphasize the benefits of a health care overhaul — not the groups' objections to some of the proposals.

Remarkably, even while noting their helpful helpyness, the piece is chock full of "blame the healthcare industry" vitamins and iron.

Allow me to offer a splanation. You see a zombie clawing at your head. It wants dinner. You attempt to put something else in it's gaping maw to survive.

Zombie's gotta eat and you don't have a shotgun. What would you do?

You have to love the sweetening in the story, the chief disagreements over this absolutely necessary and important thing, are between conservative democrats and liberal democrats. Yes. That's really the whole f'n problem right there, it's degrees of shit sammich.

I have to admit, this bullshit meme is a pretty good misdirect. "Everyone" says we must have reform, we just have to argue about the whore's price now.
