Another HCR pony: Plenty of billing for the "creative class"
Starting Monday, a coalition of progressive groups — from labor unions to health care advocates — will sink millions of dollars into television advertising and sponsor grassroots events in swing House districts thanking Democrats for passing the law and highlighting its importance for average Americans.
I'm pleased for them. In fact, the entire exchange concept -- assuming the "creative class" can hold out through 2014 -- is a gusher of billing for marketing collateral, Web 2.0 sites, wellness incentives as backdoor pre-existing conditions, polling, Whole Foods seminars, and the entire Goebbels-ian propaganda apparatus of the modern corporate state, in which the creative class plays such a leading role! Remember, when they tell us how great it is, who's profiting.
Shorter: More rents, from a money flow that shouldn't even exist.
Not just sausage, but blood sausage....
