Obama is going to push very hard, very fast for healthcare
reform socialization. And he picked a doozy to lead the charge.
Tom Daschle said efforts during the Clinton administration, led by Hillary Clinton, took too long and went into too much detail, giving every interest group an opportunity to find something they didn't like about the plan.
Because those pesky details are a hindrance, the public can’t know what we are giving them, just that we are giving them something.
Daschle …. advises clients on issues including health care, financial services, taxes and trade, according to the firm's Web site.
Health care interests, including CVS Caremark, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, Abbott Laboratories and HealthSouth, are among the firm's lobbying clients.
Why is it that the only time that being in the pocket of ‘Big Business’ is only a problem if you are on the right. Democrats would skewer Bush for assigning someone like this to a cabinet post.
But, obviously, politics isn’t common sense and it isn’t about ‘the people’ it is about power. Now that he has it he can do what we want with it. The minority party always complains about the abuse of power by the President and they kinda chatter about taking away that power. But once they have that power, all of a sudden there really isn’t anything wrong with having all that power anymore.
