HAVE CAPITALISM AND HEALTH CARE REFORM GONE WILD?

Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: a Love Story” will premier at the Venice Film Festival tonight. I can’t wait till it gets to the theaters. [See trailer below]

Is the Capitalism that we’re soaked (or should I say drowning) in today have anything to do with the concept of capitalism of yesteryear, or is it simply “Capitalism 201” gone wild?

I love “mom and pop” stores. I even like franchises and international trade; but Citigroup, Bank of America, and huge “too big to fail”, suck the life out of you; swamp and kill everything in their path behemoths … I think not.

And so we arrive on health care reform’s door steps with several behemoths sucking the life literally out of every American in the US of A. We are at the mercy of behemoth health insurance and pharmaceutical companies; and they play a huge role in whether we live or die while they get richer and richer and richer and richer.
