Bankrupt? Republicans Just Don't Care
Tort reform. Have you heard the Republicans whine about those evil lawyers who extort money from the health care system? That horrible John Edwards who made his fortune by bilking the insurance companies is the problem. The Republicans never mention John Edwards clients, because they don't represent his clients, they represent the insurance companies.
Every Democrat running for president in 2004 supported some kind of plan to extend health insurance to all Americans. It's called justice. It's called compassion. Real compassion, not some made up Madison Avenue slogan, but the real thing.
As the two America's that John Edwards discussed continue to bifurcate and the middle class disappears, the Republican party does nothing. Take it from someone who helped to keep the databases of the United States Bankruptcy Court up and running, the Bankruptcy Court is filled with former middle and upper middle class people.
The reason is simple. They got sick and the Republican party does not care. If they cared, they would do something about it.
If I lacked a conscience, I would've profited and bought stock in Senator Frist's company. The company, HCA, is the king of fraud.
They are not your friend.
