The smug millionaire morons on both sides of the aisle have collectively succeeded in shutting down the US government.
This is about a game of chicken over the profoundly flawed "universal health care" plan dubbed Obamacare.
Did you notice that the smug millionaire morons will continue to get paid while 800,000 of the little people won't?
Obamacare is a bottomless pit of government-guaranteed profits for the health care insurance cartel and the big hospital chains.
Real universal health care needs to eliminate the profiteers entirely. America can't even begin to imagine such a thing.
The fundamental truth about for-profit health care is that your health care providers have a fatal conflict of interest between your health care needs and their profits. You're going to be the fatality in that fatal conflict.
In any event, it was interesting to see what happened after weeks of apocalyptic reportage on the catastrophe that would ensue if the smug morons went through with this.
World capital markets would go into a free-fall.
The sky would shatter and the shards would rain down on us...
In fact, the Dow Jones actually went up today!
Maybe those smug millionaire morons aren't as important as they think they are.
