But it found this Watergate tapehas nothing to do with Watergate, it's one of the Nixon tapesat the Archives, National Archives, where Nixon and Ehrlichman are discussing whether or not to support this HMO concept. And Ehrlichman says to Nixon, "You're going to love this, because this is private enterprise. This isn't like some freebie thing." Nixon goes, "Oh, I like that. Tell me about it." And then Ehrlichman says, "Well, this is how it's going to work, these HMOs. They're going to make more money by providing less care. The less care they give them, the patients, the more money the company makes." Nixon goes, "Ooh, not bad!"
" I believe that the healthcare bill that was enacted by the current Congress will kill jobs in America, ruin the best healthcare system in the world, and bankrupt our country. That means that we have to do everything we can to try to repeal this bill and replace it with commonsense reforms that will bring down the cost of health insurance." John Boehner
We believe that the people in this country would like to see their tax dollars spent for healthcare, public education, jobs programs, and environmental cleanup, not more military weapons. Furthermore, acts of aggression or war without Congressional approval, with no public debate, and with minimal, censored information generated by the Pentagon and the Obama's administration are those of a totalitarian state, not a democracy.
