Forget jobs and the economy, let’s focus on search engine results

While most in the nation are concerned about rising unemployment and out of control debt, the current administration in Washington is working on…search engine optimization?

That’s right.  The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is apparently using taxpayer money for paid search engine results at Google.   Is HHS working to market legislation that most Americans did not want? Legislation should be a reflection of the will of the people, not a product that has to be sold to constituents.

At a time when Americans are tightening their belts, it seems distasteful and a waste to spend taxpayer money on search engine optimization for a bill that was shrouded in secrecy and did not accurately reflect the will of American citizens.

    Maybe they are just trying to track down opponents for reasons yet to be determined.

    Anonymous – What do you mean?

  3. If you speaking of the health care bill, more Americans are satisfied with it now that it's starting to be implemented than those opposed to it.

    Big Insurance never did like it because they wanted to continue to deny coverage for preexisting conditions and cancel coverage for chronic conditions.

    Not only that, but Big Insurance wanted to track your DNA and insure you until you were due to come down with a serious illness, and then about 6 months before, cancel your insurance.

    But, I guess you think that's OK.

    As far as tax revenues, there's still those derivatives that go untaxed as well as bank-laundered drug money from the illicit drug cartel. That too goes tax free. Evidently you're OK with that too, given your Grover Norquist "drain the tub" feudalist philosophy.

  4. Hempy –

    Are you saying you approve of the 2000+ page bill and all of its contents?

    Do you approve of forcing a vote on that bill before anyone could read it?

    Do you think it is good practice to force through legislation before the impact on individuals and organizations can be analyzed and debated?

    Do you approve of all of the spin, without merit with 20/20 hindsight, that continues on this bill?

    This is bigger than big insurance.

    Do you not think there might be alternatives other than those rammed through with this bill?

    Who wrote this language anyway?

    Just interested if you like how this was done.
