Health Care "Reform," NOT!

We shall see what comes out of the negotiations that will take place on the final bill. While there are some good provisions in the Senate bill, the fact that US healthcare would remain still a fully private, for-profit enterprise means that profits will come before quality health care for all, and cost containment. That is the primary objection that progressives have. When news of the Senate compromise hit, stocks of health care providers (Aetna, etc.) vaulted to 52 week highs. They know that the Senate bill will be good for their businesses.
