Paul Ryan 'We are Not Going to Give Up on Destroying the Health Care System'

Caught on open mic. Does not matter your party affiliation, it really seems like 2014 Dems will be swept into another super majority if the math holds up and Ryan who I guess is the new head of the GOP keeps making statements like this while seeking to privatize social security and defund programs for the poor like Section 8 Housing, but giving more money to people earning $10,000 a week because they might be a Job creator. I know a few people making that kind of cash, and they sure don't create any jobs, but like expensive forgein cars and expensive forgein beer, and clothes.

While hard working lower to middle class American's are left thinking who is looking out for me?

What I see Obama care doing is yes reforming the healthcare system much like Steve Jobs reshaped the Music Industry, It has to be reformed to change.
umm.. I think Napster takes most of the credit for reshaping the music industry.. Apple just did the same thing in a way while collecting a profit.

How was the music industry reformed? Actually the courts shut down napster.. so the government did. They paid fines, penalties etc.. They were told they needed to make it so 0% of copyrighted material was inaccessible (99.4% wasn't good enough). Then off shore torrenting became more prevalent and the government couldn't do anything. Then EFF and RIAA etc.. etc.. now ISP's can warn you etc.. etc..

but no.. let's credit Apple w/ doing the same thing done for years.. but with a price tag?

there's a purpose to this too.. The idea is cost and convenience. Rather than carry a very sensitive physical piece of equipment, maybe 6 inches in diameter. I can store it, millions of songs in central tiny location. Easily transferable etc.. can buy individual songs vs. full albums.

Consumers demand.. companies offering emerge. Unlike ObamaCare where consumers rejected and government pushed through legislation. It's like when you hear a mother try and feed a kid green peas baby food or something.. just try it.. you'll like it. Even if the baby doesn't like it.. it's gonna keep getting shoveled into his mouth. Afterall it's for their own good.
