It would be useful if you said how much Google's top executives have contributed to Obama in 08 and in the current election cycle.
Whatever it takes, save Hanger One.
I predict it will go through, using this method of decision-making. Google ppl are close w/Obama Administration. Goodies go to the close pals. I think there have been hints that Google will manage all our private (no longer) health information also, once Obamacare is entrenched. Think of the additional $$$ and control this monopoly will bring to Google - nice! I think we should have checks and balances to at least to try and limit such patronage/abuses.
"I think we should have checks and balances to at least to try and limit such patronage/abuses."
I agree wholeheartedly. We learned that in a much bigger way (trillions) during the Iraq "war" with Cheney's Haliburton and Rumsfeld's buddies making fortunes contracting out basic military services at obscene prices.
re: Google and the Affordable Care Act: you used a lot of interesting words - predict, close, Goodies, think , hints, etc...
Any facts? Or just your opinion and that of AM radio?
Sara, you are nuts. The Halliburton contracts were a bargain for the US military. Imagine having to recruit all the personnel to do all the scut work and scullery, and pay them all the benefits given to our troops.
