Jockeying Agendas in Health Care

South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint recently said, “If we’re able to stop Obama on [Obama’s health care reform package], then it will be his Waterloo — it will break him.”

I often wonder about folks like DeMint who seem to have a much bigger ax to grind against Obama than fixing the problem of health care. While I am not sure what the answer is, it is fairly clear something needs to be changed in the health care system and that something should be dramatic.

Of course, the 500 billion dollar raise in taxes by the democrats, which demands US citizens to buy government insurance or pay a 2.5% tax increase during an economic downturn, is ridiculous. Democrats seems content trying to hold on to the basic unmanageable system and just throw money at it in the hopes that any change is good.

Unfortunately, the republicans don’t see the problem with the current state of health care in America and have nothing to counter the democrat’s program.
