Rep. Jan Schakowsky To Insurance Companies: Drop Dead

Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-IL 9th District
Schakowsky: Fighting Dirty
"Preparing for the future under health care reform," reported the Chicago Tribune on August 12, "the parent of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois will shed 650 jobs amid the economic downturn that has caused its employer customers to reduce employees and a demand from Congress and President Obama to reduce administrative costs." Okay, but that's not the entire story. Obama and other Dems want to destroy the private insurance industry in favor of a single-payer system. They admit as much and gloat about it.
"This is not a principled fight. This is a fight about strategy for getting there and I believe we will." - Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), speech on healthcare reform, April 18, 2009
In other words, Schakowsky and her Democrat pals will fight dirty and without principles, because for them the end justifies the means. Principles be damned, Schakowsky admits, we'll cheat and kick below the belt to win. That's what she meant in the quote above. Hear her say it in the video below.
