Conservative Blue Dog Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are celebrating their success in delaying a full floor vote on health care legislation past the August recess and in slightly weakening two key provisions during their negotiations with committee Chairman Henry Waxman.So now the FOR PROFIT health care industry will have even more time to lie and scare the American people into believing the Devil they know is better than the Devil they don't. The problem is that the premiums will continue to rise as will profits while more and more Americans will find themselves without coverage and bankrupt as a result of an illness.
"We have successfully pushed a floor vote to September," Mike Ross (D-Ark.) told reporters Wednesday afternoon. "The American people want us to slow down, and that's what we're doing here."
The Blue Dog Democrats are a worthless bunch of fools who thought it was just fine to vote for tax cuts for the rich but helping you stay alive...not so much.
