Keith Olbermann Joins Dean Asking the Senate to Kill the Present Bill and Start Over

Under the current Senate bill, a 64 year old might have to pay three times as much as a 25 year old, which would make the mandated purchase of health insurance from a private company, impossible to afford. Preconditions would boost the premium 50%. The bill would force over 30,000,000 people to buy insurance and be fined if they don't. That is 30,000,000 new customers for insurance.

Keith Olbermann joins Dean and asks that the bill be killed, saying it is meaningless and a complete give away to the insurance industry. He blames the president and suggest Obama may have a primary challenge.

I agree. Obama has been a gutless president from a progressive perspective.

Wow, I can't believe that. That's horrible and totally unfair. Universal health care is just forcing people to buy their own insurance which they can't afford anyway? They'd be fined if they don't get it? That is toooo messed up. It's worse than what we have now, which is nothing. I'm really starting to hate Obama. He can blame others for this but he is the President. It's his job to get everyone to agree on something fair.
