Unbelievable as it may be, our misfunctioning Congress seems now on the verge of creating, under pressure and financial incentive from our dysfunctional health care industry, a reform bill that only further entrenches the industry’s power and profit, a bill that hopefully the president will not let pass his desk.

It is increasingly evident that we now have a government, the Supreme Court included, singularly aligned with corporate profit over the welfare of its citizens, in effect a fascist plutocracy that seems intent on turning America into yet another New World banana republic.

It is almost as though the Revolution, the Civil War, WWII, the New Deal and the labor and civil rights movements have all become irrelevant to our future.
