Healthcare Debate? What Healthcare Debate?

For anyone that has even remotely been paying attention, it is plain as day that there is no healthcare debate. What we have instead is one side coming up with various options and the other is talking--nah, yelling--about "a slippery slope to socialism," "tyranny," "marxism," "I want my country back!" and my favorite: "Get your hands off my Medicare, Uncle Sam!"

The insurance companies want the status quo. Period. That's why the Republicans won't back even a bullshit plan like the one put forth by industry shill Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT). No change. No reform. That's what they want. Period.

Oh, and yeah: the black guy is coming to take your guns!
