Explanation: I was driving home last night listening to WWL and financial adviser, Dave Ramsey, was on. Now don't get me wrong, I think overall he's probably putting folks on the right track (debt free can't be a bad thing), but last night he started stumping against Obama's health care plan with a fervor which bordered on Glenn Beckishness. His tone had this "they don't know what they're about to do...but I do" vibe. It reeked of propaganda. I just couldn't help but wonder how much dinero he's getting for pushing that agenda to his audience who follows him religiously...literally. He mixes a little Christianity in with his show just for good measure.
It's amazing how long and pervasive the reach of insurance and pharma companies has become. They've successfully convinced the American public that public health care is not in their best interest because "it's socialist! It will kill our economy!!". This is what our society has come to...we are willing to sacrifice our own health for the idealism of "The Free Market".
