Paul Ryan finally presented the “replace” part of “Repeal and replace Obamacare,” and it’s pretty much a gift to the wealthy and insurance companies.

Good thing I wasn’t shocked. My heart couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit.

Modern Medical Marvels

Modern Medical MarvelsIf there was any doubt that Martin Shkreli represents the rest of the for-profit healthcare industry, recent headlines removed it. Mylan’s gouging of Epi-Pens, and Aetna sulking away from Obamacare markets because they weren’t profitable enough are making quite the case for putting a public option into the Affordable Care Act.

The public option was originally in there, but removed to placate conservatives, who spent the past 6 years trying to repeal it anyway. Unless the House changes hands in November, a public insurance plan will remain a pipe dream and healthcare costs will keep going up. That’s good news if you happen to be a well-compensated healthcare CEO.

I’m not even going to pretend that single-payer will ever happen. Too much money’s at stake, and no number of lives can top that.
